The week will be filled with tinkering, building, engineering, solving, questioning, and thinking.
9) Ninja Warrior Fitness and Training – rising 3-9
Join us for a week of Ninja Warrior fitness and training. We will use obstacles around our campus, as well as local parks to build strength, endurance, and confidence.

We will also take trips off campus to get strength and conditioning skills from area coaches and sports facilities.
10) Rube Goldberg Challenge – rising 5-9
Humans can do lots of things, but so can simple machines. How can you use a series of simple machines to erase a chalkboard, water a plant, put toothpaste on a toothbrush, or make a cup of coffee? We’ll use humor and invention to complicate rather mundane tasks by creating chain reactions with machines.
