STEM Kids Camp Update: There is Still Time to Register

Posted on Jul, 10 2014

With the 2014 NDSU STEM Kids Camp well underway, the positive comments are already rolling in from students and parents alike! Parents are excited that the material is engaging the minds of their children while the students themselves are thrilled to be learning how to do new, fun things. Students in grades 3-5 and 6-8 were invited to join NDSU for a variety of summer kids camps focused on topics in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). So far, children have been able to participate in Computing and Games, Fun with Fuel Cells, Construction Materials and Robot Rumble with even more sessions in the coming weeks. In the Computing and Games camp, the children have been creating interactive stories, web pages, music and art using Scratch and even making their own RPG game. These kids really enjoyed the RPG aspect of the course and a common theme amongst them was, ā€œIā€™m sad it was only 4 days.ā€

Students in the Fun With Fuel Cells camp explore the power of a magnifying glass.

With so many positive words coming from camp-goers, we are excited to see what students will think of the camps in the next few weeks. Session 3 begins on Monday, July 14th and lasts until Thursday, July 17th. During this session students will have another chance to participate in Robot Rumble and will also have a chance to learn about the Big World of Nanotechnology. Last but not least, session 4 begins on Monday, July 21st and continues until Thursday, July 24th. During this final session of the 2014 camp, students can learn about the Mystery of Water and are able to connect with their inner Gear Head.

There is still time to sign up for both The Big World of Nanotechnology and Mystery of Water! If either of these offerings sound like something a youngster you know would be interested in, visit the STEM Kids Camp page for more information.
