What are STEM camps, exactly?

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. LEGO and Minecraft camps are also included. LEGOs are not just about building castles anymore. Most LEGO camps involve engineering and robotics. And at Minecraft camps, students learn programming and design their own game or mod.

Students will experiment, build, program, compute and design. It's much more fun than science class! Your child will do amazing things such as:

  • Build robots

  • Create video games

  • Design iPhone apps

  • Use a 3D printer

  • Learn about web design and cybersecurity

  • Fly a drone

  • Explore biology and the natural world

  • Become CSI expert


Benefits of STEM Camps

For the kids:

  • Prevent the brain drain

  • Learn that science and math have real-world applications

  • Spark interest in future careers

  • Meet people with similar interests

For the parents:

More likely to offer full-day options!
