A-STEM for Life Summer Camps (grade 6-8)
2014 Summer Camps (CLOSED) [Current Camps, go to 2015 Summer Camps]
Join us in Morgantown, WV for a summer of STEM learning. Register now for the A-STEM for Life (registration form) camps. In the week-long 2014 Summer Day Camp A-STEM for Life programs (A-STEM for Life Camp flyer), students use basic visual art and math skills to assess criteria and make recommendations for improving the efficiency or environmental impact. Students must employ scientific inquiry and explore artistic talents (hypothesis testing and investigate science behind innovative art); mobile technology (software design, programming, and mobile apps); robotic engineering (solving for a variety of unknowns, computer programming, solving robot missions); and science behind cooking (mixtures, chemical reactions, flavor enhancing).
Contact STEMPLOY to find out more about each camp or complete the camp contact and medical Program Registration Packet in addition to the Registration Form to sign-up.
