Interactive, engaging, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) concepts taught by certified engineers? Yes, this opportunity does actually exist for your child! Just think of the leg-up you could be giving your child by enrolling them in a Zen Maker Lab Summer Camp. The week-long camps are packed full of inspiring, clever, brain-twisting, problem-solving activities and challenges. Check out the fantastic camps available for kids aged 8 – 12 years.
STEAM Sampler Camp: Can’t make up your mind as to which summer camp is the best fit for your child’s diverse interests, then the Design-Make-Play STEAM Sampler Camp is the one for your family! Kids aged 8-12 years will get to design and 3D print their own light-up toy, build and code an LED clock, take part in a bridge-building competitions, and create animations using both digital tools and clay.
Design Challenge Camp: there are a few versions of this camp offered over the course of the summer (catapult/launcher camp June 28 – July 2 | electric car camp July 12 – 16 | 3D printed boat racing July 26 – 30 | walking robots August 9 – 13). In each of the camps the participants are placed in an environment that captures their imagination and stimulates their creativity. From there, the sky’s the limit. Kids get hands-on designing, building, and manipulating their creations. At the end of the week, a competition is held to see how their creations perform in different environments. Guaranteed if you sign your child up for one of these Design Challenge Camps they’ll be begging to go back for another one!
The interdisciplinary approach of STEAM helps students ask questions, connect the dots, problem solve, think creatively, and be innovative. These are the skills of the future! Being adaptable and willing to take a risk to try something new, learn something new is where innovation germinates.
