An innovative way to teach 21st century skills all year round
To thrive in the rest of the 21st century, all students need STEM. To thrive in the rest of the 21st century, all teachers need STEM. It’s been hard to do both! With Virtual STEM Camps you can now give 100% of your students and teachers exposure to STEM. It’s fast, effective, affordable, scalable, and sustainable.
STEM talent development
Studies show that early access to STEM learning better prepares students for the road ahead, a world where 21st century skills will be vital to success. But with time and budget constraints, most teachers and organizations aren’t equipped to handle the extra workload of adding crucial STEM learning to their curriculum.
Our 21stCentEd Virtual STEM Camps provide the solution. Campers will come away with an understanding of fundamental STEM and design thinking concepts and ways to implement design thinking in their own life, and won’t have to wait until summer to experience all the fun.
STEM professional development
Virtual STEM camps as a professional development experience enables non-STEM educators to integrate STEM, specifically, design thinking principles in their instruction for reimagining teaching and learning for the rest of the 21st century.
In this project-based camp, teachers will gain experience using fundamental design thinking principles to create solutions. This learning can be applied to their journey from being the “sage on the stage” to the “guide on the side,” which is the evolution of the teaching profession. Let’s get them ready!
Develop key 21st century skills
These core 21st century skills will be vital for most STEM-based careers. Participants will learn the importance of empathy and diversity in the design process as well as human-centered prototyping methods. They will come to understand the key differences between designing FOR and designing WITH, creating universally transferrable skills for product creation.
Tons of great benefits
Summer camp is an iconic American tradition. They offer students and teachers the opportunity to immerse themselves in unique interests that they are often not able to pursue in their everyday learning. It encourages growth and self-discovery in a way that’s all new to many learners.
Virtual STEM Camp applies this same logic to an all-year round approach to the focused, interactive learning that makes camp such a treasured activity.
Participants will be having so much fun engaging with the various STEM projects that they’ll hardly notice they’re learning.
Virtual STEM camps are a great starting point
Served up in two-day Mini Camps or one-day Micro Camps, Virtual STEM Camps are a great introduction into the world of STEM.
But the learning can’t end there.
Be sure to check out our virtual 21stCentEd STEM & CTE Academy with 46 (and counting) courses, spanning over 900 hours of engaging content and growth, building off of foundations learned in our Virtual STEM Camps.

How Virtual STEM Camps started
We got the idea for Virtual STEM Camps from one of the organizations we have worked with before, Junior Achievement of Utah. They came to us to see what we could design that would allow them to deliver a STEM introduction to more students.
Our first Virtual STEM Camp went so well that we decided to expand it into a larger offering so more schools and organizations can benefit. We are excited to share this way of learning with you.
