About this Event
Class Experience


Roll up your sleeves you budding engineers! This week it’s all about hands-on building and design! We’ll explore how engineers at NASA, Apple and Tesla create smart rockets, devices, and cars with lots of hands-on projects in LEGO robotics kits and MaKey MaKey microcontrollers. We’ll construct a programmable controller to move around your Minecraft worlds and guide your bots with conductive buttons made from bananas, paper clips, and even a cup of water. We’re even getting into the fundamentals of AI and machine learning as we build bots that respond to, and help improve, a greener world. And we’ll test our own Scratch coded Dance Dance Revolution floor pad to keep us moving and grooving…and celebrating our new skills in engineering. If you like to build and you want to save the world, this is your most fun camp ever!


All About Hands-On

Every day of STEM Camp brings new hands-on STEAM projects, creativity, discovery, games, and lots of outdoor play! Every week of STEM Camp features hands-on STEAM crafts and introductions/skill-building in Scratch coding and 3D design. Games include: Capture the Flag Laser Tag, Water Balloon Olympics, soccer shootout, mafia, escape the room, red light green light, Scavenger Hunts!


Your Favorite Characters & Stories

We’ll create daily projects inspired by our favorite characters and stories from Disney, Lego, Marvel, and Pixar and games like Pokemon, Mario, Bed Wars, Geometry Dash, Animal Crossing, and Among Us. And we’ll create lifetime memories with our daily camp traditions like DJ Playlist Day, Rainbow True Colors Day, and Hero Day.


Earn Badges & Challenge Coins

We’ll take on daily Quest Challenges by joining Team Fiero or Team Flow, seeking our personal best, with help from new friends. We’ll work on the hero within as we earn Challenge sticker badge achievements for our Character Cards for every project we create like Courage, Problem Solver, Upstander and Changemaker.


Learn & Grow

Creative collaboration gives us opportunities for social emotional development and confidence building. Project problem-solving helps us practice executive functioning skills like decision-making, organization, patience, and self-awareness. (STEAM: science, tech, engineering, arts, math)
