Youghal Designer Mind Summer Camp.
Cost €120 per child: www.designerminds.ie to register
Two Summer Camps: Junior 7 – 9 years and 10 – 13 years
You will not find a Summer camp experience like Designer Minds anywhere else in the country! It is not just a science camp, a technology camp, an engineering camp or a Lego camp! It is everything combined, offering your primary aged children a true taste of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths). All at a very competitive price for camps of this variety.
Each day children explore new topics and get hands on with projects, challenges and experiments which are designed to educate, entertain and inspire. Your kids will use a variety of equipment and materials such as Lego, tablets, robots, electronic prototyping kits, science kits, art materials and more.
The junior camp groups are suitable for children aged 7 to 9, and our senior camp groups are for children aged 10 to 13. Camps for each age group run concurrently so siblings in different age groups can attend at the same time in the same location.
This camp group is a great opportunity for children aged 7 to 9 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. Check out our senior camp group if you want to register a child aged 10 to 13 years old.
Designer Minds camps are all about STEAM! Activities vary according to location as we rotate them each Summer, so that your child learns new things every year.
S is for Science. Children will participate in challenges, activities and design projects which will allow them to explore Biology, Physics and Chemistry in a fun and interactive manner.
T is for Technology. Children at all camps will produce a stop motion animation movie, as this is a firm favourite and a fantastic activity for easing into the week and making new friends. Depending on location children will also do technology topics such as augmented reality, coding, music technology, digital photo processing and more!
E is for Engineering. Kids will learn about the various types of engineers and complete engineering challenges using LEGO, knex, robots, electronics and more.
A is for art. Children will work on creative projects which will also be influenced by science, engineering and technology concepts.
M is for Maths. Kids will complete maths challenges using Minecraft, and play games which will help them understand what computer programming is and how it works.
When weather permits, children will spend a little time each day outdoors.
