Welcome to our exciting STEM track-out camp, where we combine science experiments with art and creative outlets to provide an engaging and enriching experience for campers!
Our program changes every week and is tailored to participants' interests. We create the activity plan for the week each Monday morning after we get to know the participants and survey their interests and curiosities. With hundreds of experiments at our disposal and a makerspace that is fully equipped, we guarantee an unforgettable experience. Our makerspace is fully loaded with six 3D printers, a 150-watt laser cutter with a 36" x 48" cut area, plastic vacuum forming and metal bending, cutting and welding equipment. Our campers will have the opportunity to learn and design their own projects to print on our 3D printers. On the art side, we have molds for casting ceramics, multiple kilns, multiple sewing machines, five pottery wheels, an art space, and more.
In addition to the makerspace and art materials, we also have a fully-equipped science laboratory featuring optical microscopes and a scanning electron microscope. Campers will have the opportunity to learn how to use these tools and observe specimens at the microscopic level. With access to such advanced equipment, our campers can delve even deeper into their scientific explorations and gain a greater appreciation for the complexity of the natural world.
Throughout the week, campers will engage in hands-on experimentation in a wide variety of subjects, including physics, chemistry, and numerous engineering fields. Each day, campers will participate in two experiments in the morning and two experiments in the afternoon. Some examples include growing metallic crystals, electromagnetism, redox reactions, metal casting, working glass, thermite reactions, and exploring the world at 77 Kelvin with liquid nitrogen.
By the end of the week, campers will have gained practical skills in experimentation, problem-solving, artistic expression, and 3D printing, as well as a renewed appreciation for the wonders of science and art. They can walk away with the know-how to take their academic knowledge, merge with the real world, and take fun science to the next level!
Join us for an unforgettable track-out camp experience, where science, engineering, art, and creativity come together to provide a fun and engaging learning experience for all campers!
