STEM Summer Camp
What is STEM?
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We use all four components of STEM in everyday life. We use science for inquiry and experimentation, technology for learning and working, engineering to improve our quality of life, and math for virtually every job imaginable.
Why is STEM Important?
STEM develops critical thinking skills, science aptitude, and innovative thinking, all of which contribute to economic sustainability. The U.S. Department of Commerce shows a 24% increase in STEM job growth, as compared with a 4% increase in other occupations. Despite these statistics, science and math scores in the United States are lower, on average, than in other developing countries. Last summer we hosted our first ever FREE 6-week Summer STEM Camp. Camp was organized into two age groups: K-5 and 6-12 where students engaged weekly in learning about Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Coding and more!
