This summer's Camp Falcon looks to bring back its regular athletic fixtures for this year's camp-goers, but it'll be "Camp Falcon with a little bit of a different twist," said Rey Lascano, UTPB's director of continuing education.
In addition to all the physical activities the camp is known for, Lascano
said this summer's theme is "S.T.E.M," or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, with the well-known hovercraft project as the centerpiece.
Last year, students built one hovercraft using leaf blowers, whereas this year, Lascano
said the teams will build three or four hovercrafts.
"It will encourage team building since there will be three or four teams competing, and S.T.E.M puts all of these things (science, technology, engineering and math) together," he
Building catapults will also be a part of the S.T.E.M project.
"They'll be engaged and concentrating on their teams while tying into a strong project, but it'll be fun at the same time," Lascano
Camp Falcon is intended to remind the community of what's available at UTPB
"We're like a little treasure," he
