ECAHF Elementary School Engineering Camp

July 20 - July 24

The Eastern Carolina Aviation Heritage Foundation will offer an exciting, aviation-themed week long summer day camp this July for elementary school students (rising 4th, 5th and 6th graders) at the Havelock Tourist & Event Center.

The camp will provide students a fun and positive glimpse into various fields of engineering by using hands-on, creative investigations and real-world building activities. Throughout the week, students will be divided into design teams led by local elementary school teachers and engineering staff from FRC East. In their teams, students will be given the challenge to individually design and build various devices related to aviation and engineering. Students will learn engineering fundamentals by exploring various experiments related to aviation.

On the final day of camp, students will demonstrate their work in a public forum that incorporates many of the concepts from the camp’s weekly activities. Families and the community are invited to attend this final celebration on Friday.

The camp is from 8:30 am – 12:00  noon Monday through Friday and a snack is provided. No lunch is provided.

Cost for the camp is $125 per student. Scholarships may be available for students with demonstrated financial need.

The application process opens February 24, 2020 and closes on April 24, 2020. To apply, go to www.ecaviationheritage.com and follow the link to “2020 Elementary Summer Camp” or email us for the application packet at pholder@havelocknc.us.
