This Summer Camp group is a great opportunity for children from 1st to 3rd class to become confident with Science, Design and Technology. Your child will get hands on with new projects, challenges and experiments every day and we will provide a large variety of materials, so they'll never get bored. You can register a child in 4th to 6th class, by visiting our senior group page.
Our interactive lessons are designed by educators, scientists and engineers. Activities vary according to location as we rotate them each Summer, so that your child has a different experience every year. Designer Minds Summer Camps for kids are all about STEAM!
S is for Science. All children will grow bacteria this year and extract DNA from a banana! There will be more science activities which will vary depending on location such as microscopes, roller coasters, circuit building, reactions and anatomy!
T is for Technology. Children at all camps will produce a stop motion animation movie every year as this is a firm favourite and a fantastic activity for easing into the week and making new friends. We also make sure to include robots and coding at all camps, but we have lots of different robotic kits, so your child will get a different one each Summer.
E is for Engineering. Fun, interactive challenges using LEGO®, k’nex, robots, electronics and more. Again, we vary the challenges and keep things interesting every Summer!
A is for art. Children will work on creative projects which will also be influenced by science, engineering and technology concepts. All children will design their very own t-shirt!
M is for Maths. Maths is everywhere at Designer Minds and often kids don’t even notice! Our Minecraft, coding, engineering, science and robotics challenges all involve a little or a lot of the M in STEAM!
When weather permits, children will spend a little time each day outdoors. They will need to bring a packed lunch (no nuts!) and we recommend that children wear old clothing as Science and Art projects can be messy.
Camp runs for 4 hours daily and costs €125
