Architectural Engineering*
9 a.m.–4 p.m., $650 day camp/$800 residential
Looking to go green? Want to reduce energy use and preserve our natural resources? Take your artistic skills, creativity, imagination, and interest in architecture, engineering, technology, and the building sciences to the next level by learning how to create a more sustainable world. Architectural engineers design high-performing buildings that are durable, safe, healthy, and economical. Hands-on projects, group activities, and field trips to an actual green building site and an architectural engineering office are just a few of the fun activities planned for you! A final project will cap off this exciting week of learning and collaboration.

Architecture and Interior Design, Week 1*
9 a.m.–5 p.m., $650 day camp/$800 residential

Explore the architectural design process and develop your own dream tree house. You will learn about the fundamentals of hand drawing and the basics of design and space planning and use these skills to create plans and a model of your design. You’ll have one-on-one time with the instructor as well as participate in group critiques, in which your fellow students help motivate your work. You’ll learn how to give a well-thought-out final presentation to your instructor, other campers, and outside jurors. You will also visit two vastly different Detroit-area architectural firms to give you an idea what it’s like to be an architect. Attendance of this camp is required in order to participate in Architecture and Interior Design Camp, Week 2, July 25–29, 2016.

Industrial Design, Week 1*
9 a.m.–5 p.m., $650 day camp/$800 residential
Industrial designers create the manufactured products we use every day: furniture, appliances, bikes, cars, tools, farm equipment, medical instruments, electronics, and much more. In this camp, you’ll learn how they develop these products. You’ll create a problem statement, research customer information, benchmark, and sketch ideas. You’ll be introduced to the computer-aided design (CAD) program CATIA to further explore your design and have the opportunity to apply technology to create of a novel product design. Attendance of this camp is required in order to participate in Industrial Design Camp, Week 2, July 25–29, 2016.

Nanotechnology
9 a.m.–4 p.m., $650 day camp/$800 residential
Explore the mysteries of matter at the level of atoms and molecules. At the nanoscale (there are 25,400,000 nanometers to an inch), copper can become transparent and aluminum combustible. Learn about the unexpected behavior of materials at the nanoscale in interactive discussions, hands-on activities, and lab tours. Discover how we can mimic nature to make better sticky tape and stain-proof pants. No science knowledge is required.
Max. number of students: 21
 
Transportation Design, Week 1*
9 a.m.–5 p.m., $650 day camp/$800 residential
Do you have a talent for drawing and a passion for styling cars? In this camp, you’ll learn about the design and development of concept cars, create ideation sketches, experiment with scale modeling, and get exposure to digital formats. You’ll also see professional demonstrations and receive individual evaluations of your work. Homework assignments will be given each afternoon and reviewed the following morning. It is highly recommended that you attend this camp before participating in Transportation Design Camp, Week 2, July 25–29, 2016.
