RichmondCC Youth Camps Will Keep Young Minds Active This Summer

Jun 5

Richmond Community College is offering a series of summer camps that will help keep young minds stimulated and hands busy through their summer vacation.

The RCC G.R.E.A.T. (Globally Ready Engineering and Technology) Summer Camps will introduce students to emerging technologies, drones, robotics and visual arts. Camps are being offered in both Richmond and Scotland counties. R.C.C. G.R.E.A.T. Saturday Academy Logo

Each camp is $20, with lunch provided. To sign up, contact Alicia Butler at (910) 410-1706 or email ambutler979@richmondcc.edu.

Here is a schedule of the camps that will be offered in June and July:

RICHMOND COUNTY

Calling All Artists: Mask Making and More!

Grades: 4-8
Dates: June 26-29
Time: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (lunch provided)
Location: Richmond Community College Instructor: Morgan Cain (maximum 20 participants)
Description: Get ready to let your creative side shine and take home your very own masterpieces! This visual art camp will consist of multiple hands-on projects that encourage students to explore the details of being an artist, and learn to properly use a variety of art materials. Emphasis will be placed on mask making, where students will make masks by hand and have endless decoration possibilities to personalize their piece. Also included as a part of the camp will be a “mega-sized” collaborative project where students will enjoy the aesthetic and social aspects of collaboration in art. Students will also explore metal tooling to create shiny, colorful, and textured imagery on aluminum plates. Come on out for a week of art-filled fun!

Cracking the Code

Grades: 5-12
Dates: June 26-29
Time: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (lunch provided)
Location: Richmond Community College, Cole Auditorium Instructor(s): Chad Osborne and Jeff Epps (maximum participants 20)
Description: From the digital world to the physical world, these are the drones you’re looking for. Many companies are looking to incorporate drones into their business due to the price, speed, and customization capabilities of drones. This summer you will be working for a mock company that is interested in understanding the feasibility of using drone delivery systems. Through this immersive discovery learning experience you will learn and practice the geospatial skills necessary to master UAV coding and the next generation of robotics.

Geospatial Math

Grades: 3-6
Dates: July 24-27
Time: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Location: Richmond Community College, Forte Building Instructor(s): Chad Osborne and Jeff Epps (maximum participants 25)
Description: Geospatial technologies represent an opportunity to transform and reinvent the productivity of learning. By integrating scanning, visualizations, printing and simulations into instruction, we create an immersive learning environment through which students can acquire and practice higher level thinking skills. There is an engineer that exists in every student regardless of their current level of math or science. For each student that shows the desire, we will bring that engineer to the surface, take them to higher levels of achievement and prepare them to compete globally in emerging technologies.

Introduction to Mechatronics

Grades: 5-12
Dates: July 31 - Aug. 3
Time: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (lunch will be provided)
Location: Richmond Community College, Cole Auditorium Instructor(s): Chad Osborne and Jeff Epps (maximum participants 20)
Description: Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. As technology advances, the subfields of engineering multiply and adapt. Through this immersive discovery learning experience you will learn and practice the skills necessary to manipulate and control electronic devices using the Java Script programming language.
