This summer, Everest will be the first Catholic school in Michigan to host an autonomous vehicle camp as part of the STREAM summer camp. Summer STREAM offerings are available for students entering kindergarten through 8th grade. Age-appropriate programming is specifically designed for grade levels. Students in fifth through eighth grades have the unique opportunity of building the autonomous vehicle.
Everest parent Elaina Farnsworth and some of her team members from The NEXT Education gave a demonstration on Wednesday, May 29 of the autonomous vehicle to students. During the camp, which runs July 22-26, students will be able to:
- Build their own autonomous car kit and learn how the technology works.
- Create a test track and obstacles before racing other camp teams.
- Learn about leading-edge test facilities and experience connected and autonomous cars up close.
- Meet the experts shaping the future of autonomous vehicles and learn how you can be a part of it. They will also meet other students who share their passion for science and technology!
Students will be introduced to the future of self driving cars through interactive technology in a fun, hands-on learning environment.
This unique experience combines theory, knowledge and hands-on experience in an exciting and fast-paced format.
