This 8-week summer STEaM camp for kids grades 6 - 12 enables learners to explore the world of robotics, video game design, rocketry, race car engineering, alternative energy and many more science, technology, energy, arts and math challenges.

In its 7th year, this summer camp has been an on-ramp for year round STEaM learning for many students who have gone on to lead championship robotics and race teams.

The camp includes hands-on activities, fun instruction, competitions, virtual field trips, and interaction with industry professionals.  The camp design is to be educational, explorative and fun!

COVID-19 RESPONSE and ADJUSTMENTS

aSTEAM Village anticipates the COVID-19 crisis will run will into the months of June and probably July, therefore, we have been planning accordingly for worst case scenerio that can be easily adjusted in the hope of us seeing a best case scenrio.  What this means to you as a family and a camper is that we are planning  a state-of-the-art virtual summer camp if we are still quarantined or reduced to limited gatherings, however, if the quaratine and social distancing is lifted we will pivot all programming to regular on-site activities with lunch and field trips.

WHAT DOES A VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMP LOOK LIKE? WHAT ARE THE LOGISTICS?

GREAT QUESTION!  

  • aSTEAM Village camp hours will remain 9:00 am to 5:00pm and each day the camp will be divided into four 90-minute sessions. 

  • Students will rotate through each session by joining a different breakout room for that class.

  • We have made it a priority to make sure the sessions are enaging, immersive, intuitive and fun as each session will be as follows:

    • 40 - 65 minutes student activities, exploration and immersion

    • 15 - 30 minutes guided instruction with a lesson plan mapped to the activity

    • 10 - 20 minutes student/mentor Q&A and Innovation Exploration (What If We/What If You Do This? WHAT HAPPENS!)

  • Thursday afternoon sessions will be special activity days and Fridays will be fun competition and game days

  • We will ship 2 weeks worth of activity materials and supplies necessary to complete the sessions.

  • We will have technology one-on-one meetings with each family to make certain that all technology is in place to enable a successful experience for the students.
