Summer Programs

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED for the 2020 STEM Summer Camps. Please check back next May for the 2021 STEM Summer Camp offerings.

These 2020 Summer STEM Camps will provide opportunities for students to further their education beyond the classroom. Students will learn real skills that can be directly applied to STEM careers and education!

The following Virtual STEM Summer Camps were offered for the 2020 year:

Camps are listed in order of their scheduled dates.

LEGO Robotics Camp 1.02 week camp

LEGO Robotics CampREGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THIS CAMPThe power of internet technology means you can still learn how to command robots to do your bidding, right from your home.  But first, you must learn how to speak your robot's native language.  Join us for a special remote LEGO Mindstorms Robotics camp, where over the course of two weeks you will design and build your robot, program it to solve challenges and fix your robot's code and attachments when it inevitably doesn't do what you expected it to do the first time.

Dates: Monday, July 6 - Friday, July 10, 2020 AND Monday, July 13 – Friday, July 17, 2020
Time: 9 am - 12 pm
Place: Online- Zoom Live Stream

Children can only participate in those camps designed for their age group.
There are no exceptions.
Where a grade is stated, your child should be entering that grade this Fall.


Arduino Camp

Arduino CampRegistration for Arduino Camp is now closedStudents will bring gadgets of all sorts to life with electrical engineering hardware and software! Students will receive an Arduino kit with a multitude of sensors and electrical equipment to assemble into a system and e-programmed with a simplified Python language. The specific microprocessor and attachments are designed to help students build an electrical system and program it to complete a task. They will discover how engineering and programming work together to make their new and exciting inventions a reality! At the end of the camp the students will have a good understanding of electrical engineering and programing, but most importantly they will be able to keep their kits for personal use!

Topics covered include:

  • Programming Fundamentals
  • Input/Output Devices
  • Basic Voltage & Current Calculations
  • Various Other Electronic Principles

Dates: Monday, July 13 - Thursday, July 16, 2020

Engineering Camp 1.0

Engineering Camp 1.0Registration is now closed for this campVirtual Engineering Camp combines virtual teaching and offline activities in which students explore science and engineering concepts and apply them to real-world design challenges. Using recycled materials, inexpensive craft supplies, and simple electrical components, campers will design, build, and test their own hands-on engineering projects from paper towers to working flashlights. Each day will involve different experiments, design challenges, guest speakers, and discussions about what engineering actually is and how students can do it themselves using stuff they can find around their home.

During this camp, students will::

  • Get to be the engineer as they build and test their own solutions to real design problems
  • Learn to build cool stuff with materials they can find around their homes

Dates: Monday, July 20 - Friday, July 24, 2020

STEAM Camp: RocksNew This Year!

STEAM Camp Rocksthe registration for this camp is now closedSee how Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math all overlap in fun ways in Virtual STEAM Camp: Rocks! Using research-based educational content and a combination of virtual teaching and offline activities, students will explore the world of rocks from different STEAM perspectives. Each day will involve different guest speakers and activities covering the science, art, and math of the rock cycle. Campers will investigate the science of rocks and the rock cycle, explore the math behind how rocks are formed, use math and creativity to make rock art, and program a rock cycle simulation on Scratch.
