Exploding Bacon Summer Camps

2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017 | 2018 | 2019

Since starting Exploding Science Summer Camps in the summer of 2012, we have expanded the FIRST Lego League team members within Exploding Bacon, St. Luke’s Presbyterian School, and other areas in Orange and Seminole Counties. Our summer camps were built on the basis of our Exploding Science program and FIRST LEGO League Robotics.

Exploding Science is a series of hands on science experiments covering the topics of Physics, Chemistry, Simple Machines, and Alternative Energy. As a result of our LEGO Robotics Summer Camps, Exploding Science now covers Engineering concepts too.

Our team’s students serve as mentors, develop, and present the lessons on the science experiments and FIRST LEGO League robotics. Bacon students learned the challenge of being a mentor: standing back, guiding students, encouraging, and not ‘doing’ for them. They learned the value of mentoring younger students as well as the value of the restraint shown by their FIRST Robotics Competition mentors and gained skills they will use for a lifetime. It was a truly rewarding experience for both the camp students and our team.
