Primary STEM Camp Themes

Weeks 1-3: Introduction to Coding

This is the class for any kid who has ever played a video game or watched a cartoon and wondered how they were made. We introduce students to Scratch, a coding language created by MIT that is designed to help kids learn how to code. This class combines technology and creativity as kids learn the basics of coding and how to apply their knowledge to make video games and animations. The more they learn, the more details and effects they can add, which makes them want to learn more. This is a class for the beginner coder and no previous experience is necessary.

Weeks 4-6: Science of Building

Students get the opportunity to explore how science impacts how the world around us works. Some of our interactive group activities include building LED necklaces and foil boats, as well as studying the biomechanics of how a leaping lemur leaps and the chemical reaction of a volcano eruption. This module will open students’ eyes to the inner-working of the world and get them excited to learn more!

Weeks 7-9: Science of Making

From family homes and skyscrapers to highways and bridges, nearly every aspect of our lives is impacted by the structures we use. Students learn the basics of how structures are made through a series of fun and exciting hands-on activities that are designed especially for this age group. Students will see the world in a whole new way as they gain an understanding of how structures around them are made. They will also get chance to construct items, such as paper buildings and spinning helicopters as they become the engineers of tomorrow!

Weeks 10-11: Calculate the Possibilities

We take math off the page and put it where it exists – everywhere! Children learn the wonders of mathematics is a part of everything from science and engineering to music and sports. They also get to learn about fascinating mathematical concepts through interactive activities and group projects, such as learning about patterns and probability by creating a Pascal’s triangle, and about geometry by creating möbius strips. Through this module, students gain insight into how math is applied everywhere.

Weeks 4-6: Science and Engineering in Action

Now it’s time to put some of our learning into action! Using everyday items that can be found around the house, students participate in activities and group projects that allow them to create and construct objects that demonstrate scientific principles. This might include a miniature zipline to represent gravity and friction, or a catapult to represent kinetic energy. Daily lessons also include an array of other activities, such as scientific demonstrations, virtual field trips, team-based gaming, and more.

Weeks 7-9: Captivate and Accelerate

Students continue applying every aspect of STEM to take their building skills to the next level! Through games and group projects that spark their imagination and sharpen their critical thinking skills, this module shows students what they can do when they have the power of STEM. Examples of the activities we do include constructing mega marble runs and testing marshmallow structures in an earthquake simulator. This module challenges and captivates young minds and lets them see what they can accomplish with STEM.

Weeks 10-11: Compute to Win

We show students how numbers work in different areas, such as games, puzzles, and even art! Through individual lessons and group activities, we ponder math riddles, figure out number puzzles, and explore math-inspired art. This is a fun and interactive way to dig deep into the world of math. In this module, students don’t labor over math problems. Instead, they explore math possibilities.
