SUMMER CAMPS

 

LAND, SEA, AIR TRANSPORTATION

 

June 21 – 25

9 a.m. – Noon PST

Do you want to be one who makes the world move? We’re going to take a look into all of the departments of the transportation industry – on land, sea and air. It doesn’t matter what your strengths are, if you have a love for moving people and things, there is a job for you.

Engineers, artists, mechanics, fabricators, business leaders, builders, communicators, inventors, test pilots/drivers – all are necessary to making transportation come to life whether it is a car, airplane, train, helicopter, rocket, tractor trailer, autonomous robot, electric tractor, autonomous people mover, submarine, fighter jet or the Goodyear blimp. 

Each day will be a different topic as we dive deep into the world of transportation and mobility – Racing, Wheels, Marine, Air and Space. We will go behind-the-scenes at companies, discover what skills you need, have one-on-one conversations with STEM female role models, listen to panel discussions with teams of experts, and experience the feeling of each mode of transportation.

HOW-TO CAMP

FABcamp 2021

WEDNESDAYS  – July 7, 14, 21, 28

9 a.m. – 1 p.m. PST

This is a completely free online STEM-education maker camp for middle school and high school girls across the nation who are curious about cars, how they work, and those who make them. Our team will be showcasing how to plan, build, and wrench as we move our shop online with project-based learning.

Each week we will unveil all of the stages of building from a pile of parts and scrap metal as we take students from the beginning planning stages to cutting, welding, and painting to the final reveal. Each week we will interview female STEM role models, tour career possibilities, explore mechanical marvels and have fun contests!

By the end, we will have completed the assembly of a kart and a transportation robot challenge. Throughout the camp, you’ll learn about tools, engineering and fabrication, but you’ll be having so much fun you won’t realize how much you are learning.

Visit our website to find out what happened at FABcamp 2020! Visit the main page and then take a look at student’s articles, videos and more. We guarantee that this year’s FABcamp will keep you riveted!

Public speaking Camp

THURSDAYS – July 8, 15, 22, 29

10 a.m. – Noon PST

Everything in life is a mock interview. We want you to be prepared. 

Being able to command a crowd – and now, the added pressure and distance of online conferencing – can be a daunting task! But it doesn’t have to be.

Learn powerful speaking tools that will boost your confidence, put you at ease, and engage your audience. Whether your audience is a large crowd or one person, knowing how to correctly add all aspects of speaking – vocal variety, enunciation, emotion, facial expressions, hand gestures, body language – will boost your magnetism.

SNAP SUMMER SATURDAYS

JUNE – JULY – AUGUST

FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH
4-5 p.m. PST

Do you plan to become a STEM-career, transportation-designing, engineering-thinking, robot-creating, business-building leader? Becoming well-versed in electronics will help you secure the position and salary of your dreams.

“In my conversations with employers, the need for Electrical Engineers is mentioned in every conversation. I suggest to all Athenians that they purse an EE degree as a major or minor concentration. Green energy is our future and having knowledge of how to engineer it will make you a valuable asset across many industry sectors.” – Ms. Loxley

We use the Snap Circuit kit that you can purchase from Amazon Smiles (choose Athena Racing as your charity of choice). This hands-on learning will electrify the fun as we build working models of snap circuits to create a Light Tunnel, Two Mirror circuit, Break the Beam and much, much more. We’ll build in 3-D using parts that allow us to build our circuits horizontally, vertically and upside down.

Register today and have your Snap Circuit kit ready! Members are given preferential seating and are admitted from the waiting room before guests.
