Long Island’s Premier Science Camp For Grades 6-9
Summer Science Camp For Grades 6-9
Get ready to unleash your inner inventor and engineer with ESSK’s SnappyXO program! This one-of-a-kind program, developed by ESSK and the renowned Dr. Anurag Purwar of Stony Brook University, has been beta tested at ESSK for the past four years and has consistently led to incredible learning experiences for our campers and students.
Robotics, Mechanical & Electrical Engineering
We are now offering this program to 6th-8th grade students, giving them the chance to dive into mechanical and electrical engineering, microcontroller programming, and the groundbreaking Motion Gen Pro application that allows for endless creativity. They’ll learn the design process and be able to create and innovate like never before.
Our Campers Will
- Learn the Design Process
- Learn about mechanical and electrical engineering
- Use the Motion Gen Pro application to virtually innovate and create mechanisms
- Learn how to use and program a microcontroller
- Learn about the use of sensors in different environments
- Build a robot that will perform a unique function
- Participate in ESSK robotic tournaments
21st Century Skills
But most importantly, they’ll be strengthening those vital 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, collaborative teamwork, creativity, and adaptability, which are crucial for their future success. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to join the ranks of the next generation of inventors and engineers at ESSK!
Meet & Work With Inventor of SnappyXO
And that’s not all! Our students will also have the opportunity to meet and work with the inventor of SnappyXO, visit his lab at Stony Brook University, and participate in exciting ESSK robotic tournaments. They’ll even get to build their own robot with a unique function and learn about the use of sensors in different environments.
What is SnappyXO?
SnappyXO is a robotics and engineering program developed by Dr. Anurag Purwar, a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University, and it is designed to teach students about mechanical and electrical engineering, microcontroller programming, and the use of sensors in different environments. The program also includes an application called Motion Gen Pro, which allows students to virtually innovate and create mechanisms. The program is designed to strengthen students’ 21st-century skills, such as critical thinking, collaborative teamwork, creativity, and adaptability.
