Camp Program details.
Day 1: Journey into Joules: Exploring Electricity with Voltaman
The theme for Day 1 of the Islamabad Hands-on Science Camp 2023 is “Journey into Joules: Exploring Electricity.” Participants will have the opportunity to construct a DIY robot called Voltaman. This robot is designed to test conductivity and has the capability to power various components such as motors and bulbs. The aim of this project is to engage participants in hands-on exploration of electricity and its practical applications.
Day 2: A Journey into Automata (The Art Machine)
During this project, participants will learn about the principles and mechanics behind automata, which are mechanical devices that mimic human or animal movements. They will explore different types of simple machines, such as gears and pulleys, and understand how these components work together to create motion.
Day 3: Making a Robot
During the first two days of the camp, students will learn about electricity and machines. They will learn about topics like electrical circuits and controls, simple machines, gear pulley systems, etc With the knowledge they gain, students will get to build their own wired Robots on the third day. They will have the chance to design and assemble these robots by themselves, using the necessary parts. These robots will be able to do different tasks. This hands-on experience will not only help students understand electricity and machines better, but it will also encourage them to be creative and solve problems.
Day 4: Robo-Rumble: Battle of the Bots
- On day 4 students will finalize their robots and engage in a thrilling Robo fight.
Day 5: STEAM Challenge for Family
On the last day of camp, children with their parents participate in a thrilling and thought-provoking STEM family challenge that would not only help participants in testing their skills but also help them to learn about teamwork and communication.
A certificate of participation from the Pakistan Science Club will be awarded to participants (After camp completion)
