More than 300 kids spent hours learning about science, technology, engineering and math, known as STEM, as part of the 2019 STEM Kids Camp sponsored by the NDSU College of Engineering.
The camp featured more than 20 hands-on learning camps covering everything from computer coding, robotics and crime scene science to flying drones, building roller coasters and using virtual reality.
The purpose of STEM Kids is to stimulate children’s interest in STEM through exploration of topics not usually covered in their regular school classes.
"Teaching STEM Kids is such a rewarding experience,” said Lauren Singelmann, College of Engineering outreach coordinator. “As researchers, you spend a lot of your time sharing information with people who are experts in the field. However, during STEM Kids, our instructors are able to share knowledge and passion with curious minds that are just starting out in science and engineering. These kids are so eager to learn, and their energy and enthusiasm motivate and inspire our instructors."
STEM Kids Camp offers morning and afternoon classes for students in grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Registration typically opens in the spring.
