girl

 

 

 

Ever wonder what lies on the seafloor? Dive into the world of marine science, technology, and operations with the SS ROV (Seafloor Science and Remotely Operated Vehicle) camp. Discover the exciting field of ocean exploration from technical and environmental perspectives in this STEM-based camp. This hands-on camp covers the scientific method in geology, oceanology, and ecosystems plus technologies for ocean exploration. Interactive activities incorporate electronics, rovers, designing, building and driving underwater ROVs, plankton, sensors, sonars, deep-sea scientific drilling, seafloor geology and more. As an ocean explorer, you will learn teamwork, creative problem solving, all while discovering the unique underwater world.

Trevor Fournier is a graduate of California State University, Monterey Bay, with a B.S. in Marine Science and of Monterey Peninsula College with an A.A. in Business Administration. He has participated in four research expeditions as a science technician and has designed and fabricated sensors and samplers for deep sea exploration.

Girls Design and Build (Ages 10-14)

In general, female and male students perform equally well in mathematics and science on standardized tests, although women remain underrepresented in the professional trades of architecture, carpentry, and boat-building. This camp aims to change that by giving young women an open door into the world of woodworking!

Tinker, experiment and build in a camp that is designed to encourage girls to confidently use tools to design and build their own projects. Students will work with wood, metal, basic electrical, and even some tile mosaic. They will learn basic woodworking skills, using both hand tools and power tools, including safe practice! Each day we’ll have group discussions that focus on collaboration, team building, and problem solving to complete projects. Students will be using math, drawing, and other design and fabrication techniques, all while making friends and making incredible handmade projects.

Materials fees will cover all supplies and materials for student projects, including a birdhouse, a working lamp, and a small table with a mosaic surface.

Campers must wear long pants, closed toed shoes, and long hair must be tied back - safety first!

Discovering Dinosaurs! Adventures in Paleontology (Ages 6-8)

 

 

 

Step into the shoes of a paleontologist as you learn about the most impressive creatures to ever live on planet Earth, and learn about how we know what we know about them. Discover a time when giant sauropods roamed the land, pterosaurs flew across the skies, and long-necked sea creatures roamed through the continental oceans.

Throughout the week, learn about the science of paleontology through hands-on activities developed by a dinosaur scientist. Walk like a dinosaur, excavate a “dinosaur bone”, read rocks and fossils, create a jigsaw puzzle of the continental plates, and much more! Each of the activities is based on the latest science and uses the same techniques and tools as scientists in the fields of geology and paleontology.

Students will take home their excavated fossil and other projects created throughout the week, to continue their paleontological adventures!

Final Frontier Pioneers! Astronomy Explorations (Ages 6-8 & 9-12)

 

 

 

Space is often called the “final frontier”. It captured the imaginations of storytellers, who drew pictures in the stars, and of scientists and engineers dreaming of exploring beyond our world. Now, it’s your turn! Whether you want to become an astronaut, study the stars, drive a rover on another planet, or are just curious about the night sky, this is the camp for you!

In this exploration of space and planetary science, you’ll measure the solar system, create your own star chart, make a mini rocket, design a mission to another planet, and much, much more, with activities developed by NASA and other planetary scientists. Each day of interactive, hands-on activities will broaden your view of space, and your place in it.

Students will take home projects they create over the course of the week, to continue their astronomy adventures after camp has ended.

Gross-ology: Ooey Gooey You (Ages 6-8)

 

 

 

Did you know that you make a new batch of snot every 20 minutes to keep dirt and germs out of your body, or that you’ve got more than 5 senses? What about the fact that your intestines, unfolded, are the same length as two cars? The science of the human body is often gross, but always fascinating. Come learn about all the systems that make you, you!

Each day, you’ll step into the role of biologists, pathologists, and doctors to investigate what makes your body work. Test your senses, make “booger” slime, extract fruit DNA, discover why washing your hands is important, and so much more in this interactive, hands-on camp!

Students will take home lab experiments and projects created during the week, to continue their life science explorations once the camp has concluded!

Spend the week at Cabrillo’s Horticulture Center and Botanic Gardens, with sweeping views of the bay, exploring the state-of-the-art nursery, greenhouses, and CCOF certified organic farm. Campers will work in the gardens and lab-classroom to make handmade crafts from plants they harvest, learn ways to lighten their ecological footprint, explore environmental sustainability, and gain practical gardening skills - all in one week!

Learn about plants for aromatherapy, for pollinators, for culinary purposes, and for crafts. We will create herb bundles, a custom salve, poultices, and tea blends. Explore a working, thriving organic garden as we learn to winnow seeds and how to start and maintain compost. Plant native, vegetable, bee-friendly, butterfly friendly, and wildflower seeds to take home as a starter garden, and learn how pollinators are woven into our daily lives. We will make beeswax candles from local beeswax prepare natural dye from plants, and practice shibori pattern-making techniques. This will be an enriching, empowering, hands-on experience that will give campers inspiration and practical skills to grow, nurture and create with their own two hands!

Student need to wear closed toed shoes, and comfortable clothes that they can get messy! Please bring a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle.

The Cabrillo College Baskin Girls in Engineering summer program is designed for young women entering 6th - 8th grades who want to learn more about the role engineering plays in their lives. Students will engage in hands-on team-based engineering design projects where they will apply their creativity in designing engineering solutions. This program is aimed at nurturing their natural curiosity, building their confidence, and fostering their interest in engineering as a fun, exciting, and rewarding career. In addition, the young women will experience engineering in action during a guided tour of a local engineering company.

Families are invited to the end-of-program celebration on Friday at 1:00 pm where the girls present what they have learned and experienced in the camp.

The Girls in Engineering program is run by Cabrillo’s Engineering Department.

Rhoxanne Morris-Vaughan received her BS in Mechanical Engineering from San Jose State University and is an alum of the Cabrillo College engineering program. She has been the instructor of this Girls in Engineering program since it's creation in 2012. She has also been a teacher, tutor, and coach for 20+ years. She believes in inspiring the next generation of women in engineering through teamwork, creativity, and exciting hands-on projects.
