Our 2017 Summer Camp Offerings
All of our summer camps are for kids age 10-17.
The camp day lasts between 8:30 – 4:30 with pickup by 5.
All inventors have been inspired by how things work and what can be created with imagination and parts. The STEAM Society Robotics Camp brings together a strong robotics focus with a foundation of Physics, Math, and Science! Our instructors have a passion for science and want to help your child develop a curiosity for making things work. Our fun-filled and engaging hands-on camp allows free creation as well as instruction designed to make STEAM come to life.
In addition to a robust curriculum, we will have a robotics competition on the final day and encourage parents to join us as we demonstrate core concepts in robotics and engineering through challenges that are completed by our campers.
Kids will learn how code works, principles behind key coding elements such as variables, logic, and functions, as well as some basic Java. Over the course of 5 days, campers will plan out and design their own Minecraft items, creatures, recipes, blocks, and game rules. They will then add these rules into the game themselves, working through elements of game design and project management.
The students will learn how to mod and will receive instruction on the theory behind how mods work. Instructors will teach campers how to set up a modding environment at home, to allow them to keep building long after camp is over.
We have created a videography camp that takes the green room to the outdoors and the editing studio into the palm of your child’s hand! Instruction around the basics of film making such as storyboarding, creative process, and editing are reviewed to prepare campers to go out into the environment to create film! They will be filming everything on mobile phones and GoPro camera for an active, engaging, fast-paced experience that takes them through the world of a production studio. Budget, project management, and a final day film festival will provide a story-based learning environment.
We use open-source or low cost software and mobile applications to promote ongoing learning for your child without you having to worry about expensive equipment. Enjoy an active summer camp with a focus of responsible film making on the go!
