Storytime STEAM Camp - July 11th-15th for rising 1st-3rd graders (8:30am-10:00am) $150

Students participating in our Storytime STEAM Camp will begin each day with a favorite book read aloud by Mrs. Brister. Afterwards, students will take part in a related, fun, and engaging STEAM activity that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and simple Math. For example, if we read the story, Three Little Pigs, we may do an engineering project in which students construct houses made from different materials to see if theirs can withstand the wolf (Mrs. Brister) trying to blow them down (using a blowdryer). What a great way to challenge our brains and have lots of fun in the process! 

 

Innovation STEAM Camp - July 11th-15th for rising 3rd-6th graders (10:30am-12:00pm) $150

Innovation STEAM Camp at First Pres. offers boys and girls project-based learning activities emphasizing 21st century skills to include Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. This camp will reinforce skills from students’ core subjects as well as allow them to explore more topics that are of interest to children today. We will concentrate on students’ readiness for school with a focus on creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration. Students will create, evaluate, and effectively utilize information, media, materials, and technology. Engaging students in a deeper understanding of real-world connections will better help prepare them for the fast changing world we live in today. 

 

Coding Boot Camp - July 11th-15th for rising 3rd-6th graders (1:00pm-2:30pm) $150

From self-driving cars to robot-assisted surgery, computer science is revolutionizing every aspect of our lives. Coding is a fundamental part of it and a skill that children need to learn so that when grown, they can be on the cutting edge of these fields. When kids are introduced to coding, they gain an appreciation of how digital technology works. Digital technology surrounds us every day whether it be through our smartphones, video games, websites, video entertainment, automated machines, or even robots. There is very little one can do in the world today, that we aren't confronted with digital technology. What drives this technology is software or computer programs that are created by coding. Like learning about biology and chemistry, it is important for kids to understand the building blocks of an integral part of their lives. They need to realize that what happens when they use technology is not magic, and they themselves can create programs that can be useful. Knowing what happens under the hood of modern technology is just one of the benefits of learning to code for kids. Many of the other benefits are related to teaching them how to think and develop skills that they will need in the future. WE HAVE NEW ROBOTS IN THE LAB! YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THE FUN!!!
