"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.

In-Person

Collaboration between 21stCentEd and the organization where learners and “Facilimentors” (camp facilitator/mentor) are at the same location.

Hybrid

Collaboration between 21stCentEd and the organization where learners and “Facilimentors” are at the same location and virtual. 

Virtual

Collaboration between 21stCentEd and the organization where learners and “Facilimentors” are all virtual.

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."

Testimonials

"I was astonished with the amount of empathy that my learners have...they really went in depth on explaining how they cared about other people and how it's important to care about other people's opinions, likes, and dislikes." --- teacher

Camp options

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.

Entrepreneurship

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.
