Morning Topic: NASA – STEM Explorers
Think and act like NASA innovators during this hands-on program inspired by the NASA OPTIMUS PRIME Research Challenge (NASA OPSPARC). Use creative and collaborative skills to design a mission patch, train like an astronaut, build a Mars rover and solve real-world engineering problems.

Afternoon Topic: Mad Machines & Jr Engineers
Whether you enjoy building or destroying structures, you’ll love this camp! Work with pulleys, wedges, screws, and levers, build your own catapults and play robot soccer! Exercise your ability to work with others while constructing a geodesic dome big enough for all campers to fit inside! Let the engineering excitement begin!

The camp will be held outside at Centre Square Park, under the WRA Clubhouse Pavilion (when you enter the park, continue straight). The park address is 1527 Yost Road, Blue Bell, PA 19422.

Inclement Weather: 
The pavilion is a covered area. Campers will be outside the entire day. In the event of inclement weather (drizzling), camp will NOT be canceled. In the event of extreme weather (thunder/lightning, heavy rains), we will move campers inside the clubhouse.
