The world runs on STEAM and there simply are not enough qualified professionals to fill the millions of positions that demand the STEAM skillsket! The STEAM portion of our camp is built around a variety of fun topics and themes for each week, making for an exciting range of concepts and challenges to keep students interested and engaged all summer long. They will take their concept through the entire design process from brainstorming, to rapid prototyping, engineering & building, testing & closing, and final roll-out.
Computer Programming & Coding
Coding is amongst the most in-demand skills in tomorrow’s job market and the skills you learn as a computer programmer can be applied to almost every professional field.
Students will develop their programming skills through interactive classes, peer collaboration, and independent work projects.
Learn the most common and popular coding languages like Java, one of the most relevant and long-standing programming languages in the world, and Python, the world’s fastest-growing programming language! With all of this experience, you’ll be prepared for wherever your computer science career takes you, from software engineering to machine learning!
- Create your own algorithms
- Gain critical computational thinking skills
- Build actual working programs
- Solve programming challenges with logic and code skills
Physics, Biology & Chemistry
Students will build on knowledge gained in their school science curriculum to think, research and experiment. They will use their imagination and creativity while actively engaged in science and engineering practices. Programs are lab-based and involve reading, computer searching, writing and group work.
Using scientific methods to explore various topics within biology, chemistry and physics, students will be guided through a variety of hands-on experiments and challenges that will include designing, constructing, testing and modifying ideas.
Older students will concentrate on developing research skills. The students will work in groups to explore botany, microbiology, genetics and molecular biology. These students will develop their problem-solving skills by working through instructions independently. They will develop and test hypotheses and report their conclusions to the group.
Robotics is an integral part of many cutting-edge fields like aerospace engineering and hardware design. It is incredibly hands-on and develops creating thinking and problem solving in tough situations.
Students will learn how to use soft and hardware to create a working robot model, with practicial capabilities. There will be a mini-robotics challenge and the best robot will win!
