Our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Education Camps strive to connect campers with the changing world of technology and allow them to explore the fields of engineering, computer science and mixed media arts. Our expert teachers leverage project-based learning to ensure students have fun and remain thoroughly engaged, while building proficiency and creating technologies poised to transform society.
In this program, campers will be introduced to a variety of fun and engaging STEAM disciplines throughout the week. Each day, campers will exercise their minds with simple individual builds to more complex projects where they will have to put their heads together and collaborate as a team during competitions.
From building simple LEGO machines to programable Robots that will have to complete specific tasks or navigate obstacle courses, campers will continually tinker with their builds to ensure optimal performance. Simple coding projects will also be introduced during the week, and campers will always have time to use their imagination during periods of 'free-play.' Our expert instructors will always be on-hand to offer guidance across all subjects.

LEGO Robotics - BattleBots - RoboRacing - Drone Coding
