Architecture and Interior Design, Week 2*

9 a.m.–5 p.m., $600 day camp/$765 residential

Have a great idea and some sketches? In this camp, you’ll develop your ideas into realistic designs of buildings and interior spaces. You’ll create plans and illustrations, along with a carefully crafted scale model. You’ll organize interior spaces; coordinate materials, colors, and textures; and choose lighting. And during this process, you’ll explore how your plan for the interior spaces can harmonize with the exterior architecture and still maintain a balance with nature. Participation in Architecture and Interior Design Camp, Week 1, is required to attend this camp.

Max. number of students: unlimited

Biotechnology

9 a.m.–5 p.m., $650 day camp/$765 residential

In a research lab setting, you’ll genetically engineer bacteria, purify and quantify proteins, and learn how to clone genes. You’ll apply modern DNA profiling techniques to solve crimes and use high-tech tools to diagnose diseases and track infectious outbreaks. Your days will be filled with hands-on experimentation with just enough theory and background to make the experience meaningful.

Max. number of students: 20

Imaging and Graphic Design*

9 a.m.–5 p.m., $600 day camp/$765 residential

Develop your artistic skills as a graphic designer. With the guidance of field-seasoned professionals, you’ll learn to navigate the challenges of visual communication while creating artwork for computer games, cartoons, and advertising. Sketching, photography, computer-based graphics, and animation will be featured.

Max. number of students: 18

Industrial Design, Week 2*

9 a.m.–5 p.m., $600 day camp/$765 residential

In the second week of the Industrial Design Camp, you’ll refine and improve on the design prototype you created in your first week. You’ll also prepare a final presentation of your design, just like the professionals in the field do. Participation in Industrial Design Camp, Week 1, is required to attend this camp.

For juniors and seniors. Explore the basics of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer in this hands-on, science-rich camp. We live with the phenomena of thermal science every day, but most of us have no idea how they influence everything around us, including leading-edge technologies like alternative energy, biomedical engineering, and micro/nanotechnology. You’ll work in teams to learn how heat passes through materials; why some materials conduct heat more readily than others; and how energy is transported in different situations.

Max. number of students: 20

Transportation Design, Week 2*

9 a.m.–5 p.m., $600 day camp/$765 residential

In the second week of the Transportation Design Camp, you’ll work with clay to create a physical model of the vehicle you designed in the first week of camp.
