RMU Holds Annual SEMS Summer Day Camps
The SEMS Summer Day Camps give local middle-grade and high school students hands-on learning experiences in animatronics, forensics, and a variety of science-related topics.
Animatronics is the art and science of designing and building animated sculptures and puppetry. In this camp, led by Arif Sirinterlikci, Ph.D., director of the Engineering Laboratories, students designed, built, and integrated components that gave them the background to create their own animatronic model.
“Spark Your Imagination” gave middle school students many opportunities to engage in a variety science topics including biology, environmental science, chemistry, and physics, as they explored science through an inter-disciplinary approach, combining art and science with hands-on activities.
