CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — Penn State Lehigh Valley has announced its 2019 Summer Camps, which include a variety of options for elementary, middle and high school students, and registration is now open for all camp offerings.
Two sessions of week-long summer day camps will run July 8-19 at the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus located in Center Valley. There are camps geared toward students entering grades 1-12. Offerings include writing, visual arts, LEGO engineering, math, biology, computer programming, CSI and swimming camps. Camps will be held in the morning (9 a.m.-noon) or in the afternoon (1-4 p.m.). Penn State Lehigh Valley staff will be on hand if parents require early drop-off, lunchtime supervision and/or late pick-up.
In addition, full-day camps will be offered to middle-school students from July 8-12, and pre-college program camps will be offered to provide teens entering grades 9-11 real-world experiences in Makerbotics, Civics and Genetic Investigation. These both are week-long, full-day camps.
The Makerbotics program will run from July 15-19 at Penn State Lehigh Valley. It will engage students in a design challenge using TinkerCAD software, 3D printing and Lego Robotics. Penn State faculty will be teaching this program as a practical introduction to robotic design and implementation.
