Kids are accustomed to screen time. With online learning becoming more popular, and often necessary, they’re quite used to being connected. But being on the computer or tablet or smartphone doesn’t have to be an aimless use of time. A&D Tutoring is offering an exciting array of virtual summer camps that will help your child’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) knowledge grow.

It’s no secret that STEM careers are on the rise and demand for people with STEM experience is increasing. So signing your child up for a STEM-related summer camp with A&D Tutoring is not only feeding their interest, but setting them up for future success! You can encourage your child’s obsession with Minecraft, Roblox, or YouTube video creation knowing that their time with A&D Tutoring will be focused on learning — but with plenty of fun mixed in, of course!

Check out these seven exciting summer camp options. With each camp costing just $180 for 5 days (3 hours a day), you may even want to sign your child up for more than one! Be sure to check the A&D Tutoring website for software and computer requirements for each camp.

Space Exploration (Ages 7 to 12)

Look beyond our atmosphere in an Astrophysics class! Take off into our galaxy and learn about the night sky, stars, planets, missions to the moon, Venus, Mars and beyond.

Between 1990 and 2003, NASA launched four great telescopes into space to observe the Universe in different but complementary ways. The Hubble Space Telescope receives visible and ultraviolet light from both “nearby” and very distant stars and galaxies. The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory detected highly energetic radiation from exotic and violent astrophysical processes. The Chandra Observatory measures X-rays coming from hot gas in space. And the Spitzer Space Telescope imaged infrared radiation (heat) from dusty regions of galaxies where visible light is blocked. Separately, from 2009–2018, NASA’s Kepler satellite searched for planets around half a million stars in our Milky Way Galaxy. Come to learn about the history of these missions, how they work, and some of the discoveries they have made in a “golden age” of astronomy.
