Recover the U.S.S. Poly from the bottom of the ocean! In this program, campers learn to build a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) that will be used in a shiphunt. Young engineers use logic, problem-solving, and trial and error while designing, constructing, painting, and testing their fully functional aquatic robot. Campers personalize their final product through decoration; test it during an underwater obstacle course in the Poly pool, and design an advertisement that showcases the features of their vehicle.
 
Includes:
  • Super smart and fun instructors
  • Collaboration with other campers
  • Training in the use of construction tools
  • Building with soldering irons and drills
  • Product testing in Poly’s swimming pools
  • Daily games and challenges
  • Hands-on workshops

Led by Fleurette Turkenkopf and Simon Gilbert, Poly science faculty, both known for keeping kids laughing while learning.
