SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Innovation Center at Saratoga, Inc. is kicking off its programming this summer with two one-week sessions of a Roller Coaster Camp in association with Clarkson University. Camp will be held July 26-30 and again August 2-6 at the Maple Ave. Middle School.
The camp offers rising 7th and 8th graders the opportunity to experience the creation of a roller coaster and theme park while working in small teams. Students will learn the science behind roller coasters, use Roblox to create their dream coaster as part of a theme park and visit the Great Escape to see a theme park in action.
Camp registration includes four days of in-class exploration of physics, math, computers and artistic components as students learn to theme their parks and coasters, and one day at the Great Escape.
The camp is based on the Roller Coaster camp developed by the Physics and Math Departments at Clarkson University. The Innovation Center educational team will be trained by Clarkson University faculty who run the camp on Clarkson University’s Potsdam campus.
