WHAT IS A STEM CAMP?

STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Math

Otherwise known as the skills your child will need to get a job. It will most likely one that has not been created yet.

Math camp may be a hard sell for most kids, but it is always incorporated into the other three areas. 

What, exactly, goes on at STEM camps?

Students will experiment, build, program, compute and design. If science class was like summer camp, we wouldn't have a STEM pipeline problem. 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
