Details & What to Expect

After the success of our 3rd Annual Jr. Hackathon we were amazed by the amount of positive feedback we received from our community members. Many asked us about our next event, so this Summer Camp initiative is for our community. We want to give students more opportunities to learn outside of their school curriculum by implementing all their favorite activities in our lessons. As well, our volunteers wanted more ways to continue building experience and connections. After months of preparation, we are ready to unveil STEM1's Summer Camp 2021! 

STEM1's Summer Camp introduces students to STEM concepts in fun and unique ways. Each week we'll introduce a new theme that will consist of theme related activities and competitions. All concepts needed to accomplish these challenges will be taught during camp. Students will compete in teams of 4 - 6. Take a look below at each weeks theme and what more to expect our of this summer camp!
