WHAT is a STEM/Sail Camp?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Sessions will include: Underwater robots design and building, the physics of sailing & how sailboat design influences underwater robotic design,  Robot Races, and sailing El Toro wooden sailboats!

Who can attend? 

Middle school girls, rising into 6th through 8th grades. Classes limited to 12 campers.

When is it happening?

Learn to Sail!- August 12- August 16
Week 1:  Participants learn how to sell an El Toro wooden boat using the elements of knot tying, line handling, safety on land, trim, ballast, buoyancy, and applying the forces of wind and current while sailing.  Students need to be prepared to go out rain or sun; bring an extra set of dry clothing. 

Underwater Robots Build & Design: August 19 - August 23

Week 2: Participants learn how the physics of sailboat design influences underwater robotic design, how to build and integrate various systems of the robot together as engineers would, and then test their robots out on Lake Union while create videos of the bot's adventures!  In addition participants learn about the history of underwater exploration, create bathymetric charts to simulate navigational contour maps, and do hands on experiments with sound reflection & refraction.
