How Does Our Program Work?
Summer STEM Academies 2022 Schedule
Join us this summer at our Young Engineers Club,
where we engage kids in building, tinkering, and creating ... the underlying skills of understanding the world around us .... making sense of structures, electronics, bicycles, computers, and more!
During Young Engineers Club use items as basic as craft sticks and straws, to complicated electronics such as Makey Makey, and robotics such as Sphero. The goal is to develop students' problem solving skills through creating and collaborating with peers. Students are encouraged to think outside the box and come up with diverse solutions to real world problems. STEAM has never been so fun!
STEM Camps offer kids the ability to learn about the world around them while developing important Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math skills.
Young Engineers Camp - Junior and Apprentice
Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 3 PM
STEM Challenges - Design Engineering, Robotics, Coding, and MakerSpace
Bring your creativity, tinkering, curiosity, and building skills!
Cost: $250 per camper (sibling and multi week discounts)
Snacks provided, engineers bring their own lunches and drinks
Ages 6 - 8
Spark curiosity and engagement with our youngest engineers! Kids at this age are extremely interested in the world around them, and using their hands to discover basic engineering principles. Campers work collaboratively to design super strong structures using everything from household items to the most beloved of engineering toys, Legos!!! Basic robotics principles are taught through Wiggle Bots, enabling them to create unique bots to solve problems and have fun. Kids also become mystery investigators through our Breakout Escape Challenges, as they attempt to solve mysteries focusing not only on STEM skills, but utilizing teamwork and clues open enough locks to survive! Many other fascinating and exciting activities await your Junior Engineers.......see you this summer!
Ages 8 - 12
Take engineering skills to the next level! Our apprentice engineers are ready to dig deeper, using their creativity and design skills to build structures that can withstand the most extreme disasters as well as begin using basic design engineering to continue testing and improving their structures. Robotics come to life with our Sphero BOLT bots, as kids not only program and drive bots but create challenging courses to test their coding skills. More mysteries await through Breakout Escape Challenges as students must work collaboratively to decode evidence and open locks to survive! Engineers continue discovery using the Design Engineering process to create raceways for cars and rockets for space, incorporating STEM skills throughout each challenge. Engage your Apprentice Engineers.....see you this summer!
