Grades One to Five - Summer Ste[+a]m

 

Demand for STEM careers shows no signs of slowing down. For students to become tomorrow’s STEM leaders, they need to experience STEM first. At the core of each of STEMscope’sTM STEM solutions is hands-on, inquiry-based investigation that helps students become tomorrow’s STEM leaders and innovators by letting them experience science. As students dive into the investigations found in each scope, they develop their own contexts and meanings for the scientific concepts they are learning, retain more knowledge, and develop deeper understandings of the world around them. Each STEMscopeTM module engages students in cross-disciplinary activities that spark a lifelong love of learning and build knowledge and skills in areas including computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. In addition, each module empowers students to develop essential skills such as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and perseverance. The curriculum is different each week, so there’s no repetition!  Come for one week, or all five weeks this summer!Each week students in the Summer Steam Academy will take three classes combining the STEMscopesTM curriculum in either physical science, life science, or earth and space science with arts, robotics, coding, and math.
