Register for a STEAMPunks Summer Camp here!
Summer vacation: a time for trips to the pool, baseball games, BBQ and for kids, a few glorious weeks off school. Still, even when the weather is warm and the school schedule slows, learning can (and should!) still occur! In these situations, parents often turn to summer camps and other extra-curricular activities to keep brains engaged and hands occupied. STEAMPunks Summer camps offer a unique and memorable opportunity for kids to learn STEM skills, make friends and create amazing projects they can look back on forever. Here’s 5 reasons to sign up for a STEAMPunks Summer Camp right now!
Powered by STEAM
STEAMPunks summer camp is predicated on the idea that STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math) subjects are both fun and applicable to the real world. With a job market that’s rapidly expanding to require more of these skills and the continual promise of solving world problems through technology, getting kids interested in STEAM subjects early is crucial. With classes ranging from Video Game Design, Coding and Robotics, Circuitry, Stop Motion Animation, 3D Printing and much more, there’s surely a subject that will pique your child’s interest, and potentially kickstart a lifelong passion or a new hobby!
We like structure, but we also recognize that for optimal learning, campers need the opportunity to explore their subject in a hands-on environment and at their own speed. All of our projects are scaffolded, meaning our curriculum is guided and our knowledgeable staff are always on hand to lead, but they allow for some variation camper to camper. Campers are given projects, and helpful lessons and maps on how to carry out the project, but in many cases, what they make is entirely up to them. Best of all, while they’ll learn indelible STEM skills at camp, all STEAMPunks classes account for a physical project which means every camper will have something tangible to take home and remind them of their awesome camp experience.
