Hobble Creek Learning Center has been chosen from applicants throughout the United States to be the site for two engineering summer camps. This is a unique opportunity and there is limited space available for each summer camp. The first camp will be held on July 30 from 1 to 4 p.m. It is geared to students from 10 to 14 and is sponsored by U. S. Synthetic in Orem. Participants will learn what is means to be an engineer and how engineers invent cool things that can change the world. They will learn how to become great problem-solvers using tools that real engineers use to invent, innovate and solve problems in the real world. Then, using those skills they will tackle some fun, hands-on engineering challenges to build a "tower of terror." Participants will learn how to solve any problem at home or in school with their new problem-solving tools as a Jr. Engineer! The second camp, which will be held Aug. 5 to 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. is sponsored by the internationally award winning Boston Museum of Science. Hobble Creek Learning Center was chosen from applicants throughout the United States to be the test site for a summer camp titled "Engineering Everywhere Food For Thought: Engineering Ice Cream." This program aims to enhance knowledge of technology and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors and innovators. Participants will enjoy an experience with hands on engineering that will wake up their brains and their taste buds as they engineer better ways to make ice cream.
