Does your camper love the outdoors and all things technology-related? This is a place for curious minds to look at their world and use technology to solve real problems. This camp is intended for rising 6th–9th graders who are interested in learning how to build simple devices intended to help solve a problem in the Gardens or related to agriculture. Skills the students will be learning will include product development, design, product testing, basic electrical engineering, critical thinking and problem-solving, while also learning more about the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the unique factors involved in maintaining the health of plants and providing a safe and nurturing environment for visitors to the Gardens.
