The Built to Tilt camp is for fifth- through ninth-graders and challenges students to figure out how a tower can be built to lean 18 degrees or how an entire office can be built in the shape of a basket and then to engineer their own design. The projects will be showcased on the last day of camp. Parents can register children entering grades 5-6 using course ID: NKC S41 001, and children entering grades 7-9 using course ID: NKC S41 002.
