"SLICK" Science Summer Youth Camp
June

Salt Lake Community College, Taylorsville Campus
4600 Redwood Road, SLC 84123

The School of Science, Mathematics & Engineering each summer sponsors the Slick Science Camp for students entering sixth through ninth grades. They build and program remote-controlled vehicles and learn basic programming commands, physics, robotics, engineering, GPS and more. They use 3D printers to fabricate some components of their vehicles and learn about electricity and manufacturing techniques. On the final day, students demonstrate all they’ve learned by putting their cars through a designated course. There are three, one-week sessions offered each year.

Please contact Jan Rogers at 801-957-5181 / jan.rogers@slcc.edu for more information. You can also register for the session of your choice.
