Light It Up summer camp is a 4 day engineering camp that offers participants an engaging hands-on project that develops aerospace engineering skills in mechanical design and electronics.  Participants will work with a variety of tools including a drill press and soldering iron to design and build an LED sign that represents a idea or concept related to a cause.   
 
Participants will design and plan an engineering project, keep an engineering journal, interpret and draw schematics, breadboard series and parallel circuits, use Ohms law to analyze electrical characteristics of circuits, use test and measurement equipment, and prepare and present product design, and produce a product that can be taken home.
