"STEM" the learning loss this Summer
The U.S. Department of Education is committed to resuming in-person learning. The flexible design of our Summer camps accommodates for all learning venues. This is great assurance during these uncertain times. We are nimble enough to pivot and continue our Summer STEM programs regardless of whether schools are virtual or back in-person.

STEM camp benefits
All of our camps engage adults and students in a co-learning experience where adults act as "Facilimentors" learning alongside students (no STEM background needed). Students exercise learner agency as they use STEM and innovation practices to creatively design product solutions for a "client."
Design Thinking STEM
This camp is a foundational experience for building 21st-century skills around design thinking, prototyping, developing empathy, and what it means to engineer solutions to complex real-world problems.
Intro to Programming
This camp provides foundational computer-thinking skills mixed with design thinking practices. Participants solve problems and create solutions using the Scratch programming language, an intro-level block-coding program developed at MIT.
Participants learn how to access their inner creative genius to find and create great ideas that can become the beginnings of an entrepreneurial career. Learn how to build prototypes to showcase to family, friends, and the community.

Develop these 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.
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.
Virtual STEM camps are available
Summer – Fall – Winter – Spring
Every Child Needs a STEM Education
In these uncertain times, we want our kids to get ahead, not just get by. Engaging in STEM experiences today develops key 21st-century skills that prepare them for tomorrow. Our innovative virtual learning courses fill important gaps in your child’s STEM education and helps set them up for future success. We must raise STEM-prepared kids. This is why we exist!
