Alfred, NY - Alfred University
Ceramic & Glass Engineering Camp

The Alfred University Ceramic & Glass Engineering camp is for students who wish to learn about this exciting field. Students participate in fascinating hands-on lab experiences in ceramic processing & tape casting and glass melting & press forming, working alongside faculty. Ceramic Processing and Tape Casting: Ceramic components are at the heart of a vast majority of our everyday items, from cell phones to toilets. At the center of the manufacturing process is ceramic processing - using powders to make usable items. This summer lab exercise will focus on making a ceramic “sun-catcher” that will be fabricated using tape casting, lamination, and glazing, capturing aspects of both historical and advanced ceramic materials and processing techniques. We will discuss the chemistry involved, the reactions that occur at both room temperature and at high temperature, and how these processes affect the properties (light transmission, strength, etc.) of the ceramic component. Glass Melting and Press Forming: Glass is everywhere in our daily lives, from the screen on your cell phone and LCD television, to windows, bottles, and fiber optic cables. Unlike other ceramics and materials, glass is not a solid, but a super-cooled liquid. How glass is made, however, is an exciting and visually spectacular event, where raw materials (sand, limestone, and soda ash) are blended and melted at high temperature to form a viscous liquid that can be cast and shaped into objects. This lab exercise will discuss how chemistry affects glass properties and color, making glass, and stress in glass due to cooling. In addition, each student will cast a glass piece to take home! In the evenings, students have lots of fun participating in a variety of activities including indoor and outdoor games, movies, hikes, social gatherings at a local coffee house, a farewell party on the last night, and more. Living, dining and learning together, students have ample opportunity to get to know each other and develop lasting friendships

Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute

The Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute at Hobart and William Smith Colleges provides exceptional opportunities to explore the scientific, social, and humanistic perspectives of environmental issues.
The Institute offers a two-week, college-level interdisciplinary program for talented high-school students entering their junior and senior years. The program is designed as an introduction to a variety of environmental issues and perspectives on nature and our environment. Students will conduct research with faculty members in a variety of locations: on the HWS Scandling (a 65-foot vessel on Seneca Lake), in streams, quaking bogs, the Adirondack Mountains, and the Colleges' science laboratories.
Working in the field, in laboratories, in classrooms, and on a four-day Adirondack research trip, students will explore a range of topics in environmental policy, economics, and ethics, and come to see the natural world through the eyes of artists, historians, philosophers, and scientists. A love of nature, learning, and the outdoors provides the focus for this unique educational experience.
The Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute is located in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes region, on beautiful Seneca Lake.

Program Information:
Coed. Talented high school students entering junior and senior years. Residential.

Edge on Science
Hydraulics Makerspace, Summer Rocket Blast Off and Bridge Building

Sign up at for Spring Break and Summer Programs.
April 17-19, 2017- a three day program
Hydraulics Makerspace
- Your child has likely seen a backhoe working to move earth. A backhoe uses a hydraulic system to power the articulated arm and shovel. In our makerspace, children get to tinker and build table-top hydraulic machines of their own design. And not just any machines, but ones that perform specific tasks.
August 14-18, 2017, half-day
Summer Rocket Blast Off
- Each child designs, builds, tests and flies his or her own rocket. Rocket designs must be approved by the lead instructor. Your child uses rocket design simulation software to test different designs, motors and flight conditions. This design software is the real deal, used by professional engineers to design rockets for scientific research. The only difference is that it has been configured for use by young people.
August 14-18, 2017, half-day
Bridge Building
- Using engineering principals, each child engineers, builds and load tests an efficient, balsa wood and/or basswood model bridge that satisfies certain design criteria. Starting with a simple beam your child is introduced to engineering basics.
Outside we build wood trusses and combine them into a working bridge!
Catapult Engineering - Siege the day and make your own take-home tabletop catapult. Outdoors, teams build a trebuchet (a hurling machine) out of precut timbers and then engage each other in medieval challenges. Field games like Castle are also played.
Click on Massachussetts link below for details on Catapult Summer Program.
Your camp leader is John Aviste, a professional engineer, accompanied by a trained assistant
