STEMA Explorations 

Ages 8 – 13

Has your child ever been interested in building their own solar powered car? Have they ever wondered how to actually see DNA in a living organism, or have they ever simply wanted to try and be an astronaut? Then the STEMA workshop is the summer camp of their dreams. The STEMA Explorations camp is a week with the goal of allowing kids from the ages of 8-13 the ability to explore areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Art (STEMA).

The kids will have the ability to explore 5 different areas by engaging in fun activities with in-group or by individual work. Projects will have kids extracting DNA, which they can really see with their own eyes, out of fruits like strawberries. Other projects will be design challenges where they must design a spacecraft to safely land an egg on “Mars” with a budget and parts list.

If your child enjoys science and wants a little bit of everything, then this is the camp for your family. Each day will focus on a different aspect of STEMA  having them learn about the world and how magical it really is.
