Summer Adventure Academy – 9th & 10th Grade Camps – St. Louis

July 17 at 9:00 am - July 21 at 3:00 pm

Summer Adventure Academy Graphic

For rising 9th & 10th graders.

At Ranken’s Summer Adventure Academies, students get fun, hands-on experiences with technology. They learn about career paths in technical industries while they have the experience of a lifetime.

Each program encourages students to design, create, think and work through hands-on activities. Over the course of the week, students complete a project and often get to take home their unique creations!


Airbrushing Paint FX – Brighten up a dull summer at our custom automotive painting and airbrushing camp! Students will learn popular airbrushing techniques, starting with basic hands-on airbrush exercises. Whether it’s on the hood of a car, or a canvas, this camp lets you channel your inner artist.


Boot-Up Computer Camp – Students will learn about the latest computers and operating systems, how they work and how to apply that knowledge into a real-world networking environment. Working both individually and in small groups, students will complete hands-on class projects.


Design and Engineering – Dream, design, and engineer it!  Learn manufacturing processes from blueprints and design to prototype production and quality control! Explore how your idea can come to life with Mastercam and Solidworks software. Students will use state-of-the-art Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) machines to machine and assemble projects and experience 3D printing.


EV3 Robotics & Racing @ the Academy of Racing – The first half of the day, students race electric-powered racing karts learning basic principles like “the line,” acceleration, braking, & race craft. Campers will work with LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 in the afternoon, building, programming, and testing their solutions based on real-life robotics technology.


Heavy Metals – Use raw metal to create your own designs! Students will learn the fundamentals of welding, from simple techniques to more complex ones. By the end of the camp, students will design and fabricate their very own creative concept, learn some basic blacksmith work, and walk away with a metal masterpiece.


TETRIX Robotics Technology – Build your own robot and apply engineering design principles while expanding your technical building and logical thinking skills.  Learn programming design and how input/output devices can affect the behavior of a robot. A robotic challenge will test your skills.


Turn 4 RC Race Engineering – Students model a motorsports team while working to optimize the performance of a FastTrack RC (remote control) Car through inspection and modifications (just like the real race team professionals do). Take the challenge!


Women in Engineering – Experience the fun and excitement of solving engineering challenges on a team of like-minded young women.  Discover how you can use your unique talents to find satisfaction in engineering.
