UNI Calendar of Events

Conferences, Workshops and Camps

Monday, June 22, 2015 - 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

Logistics: $345.00 registration fee includes programming, use of lab tools and supplies, and camper's own (to take home) sumo robot kit (to take home). Campers should bring a sack lunch and snacks daily and wear comfortable clothing.

Build your own fighting sumo robot in just one week! Design, build, program, and test your own mini-sumo robot then challenge fellow campers to a match of power and wits in the sumo ring (like Japanese Sumo wrestlers). Can your robot expel all challengers while holding its ground? Everyone will exit the ring and the week with new design and programming skills, knowledge of autonomous vehicle robotics and their own robot to take home.

Special Note: This camp is open to beginner through advanced robotics levels and may be repeated for more advanced experiences. Repeat campers who return with their robot receive a half-price discount on registration.*

Monday, June 22, 2015 - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Come explore the tallgrass prairie through art, science, and technology! We will visit UNI's prairie preserves to learn about the plants and animals that live on the prairie. Then create photographs, sketches, and other art inspired by our exploration. If you love being outdoors and learning about nature and art this camp is for you!

Monday, June 22, 2015 - 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

Logistics: $100.00 registration fee includes programming and use of LEGO Renewable Energy kits. Lunch and a snack are provided daily. Campers must wear jeans or other long pants and tennis shoes or other close-toed shoes in the ITC labs.

Spend the week at the UNI Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) facility exploring energy sources, especially renewable energy. Get your hands on EET lab equipment (including solar panels, wind tunnel, and turbine) to investigate circuits, generators, and motors. Once you've got the basics of energy down you'll work in teams with LEGO Renewable Energy Kits to solve a series of challenges.

Monday, June 22, 2015 - 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

This camp is especially designed for those who love to read, are eager to read better and/or learn how to begin reading. Located especially in the University of Northern Iowa's Rod Library Youth Collection where lots of childhood favorites and award winning books are located will be available. There will be many literacy-related arts and crafts and designer activities planned with a daily theme. Reading can take you everywhere as we also explore many of the sights and sounds on the University's campus such as the Maucker Union, Wellness and Recreation Center and many more! Children will also learn many of the skills of authoring, illustrating and publishing their own personal books!

Become a leader through other creative experiences with an integrated approach to literacy- creating our own rap music to be shared outside like a real literacy atmosphere. We will also spend some time with outside creative arts such as sidewalk chalk-writing and writing with water! Lots of literacy learning and fun!

Monday, June 22, 2015 - 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Curious children, grades K-5, are invited.  Throughout the week, students will be deeply engaged in exploration of hands-on S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) projects.  Leadership skills will be integrated through STEAM and arts-based instruction.  The camp's goal is making STEAM fun AND available for all children through camp scholarships.
