STEM Camp with STEM Beginnings! 
STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning. It integrates the four disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into relevant but fun activities meant to build and sustain interest as well as establish foundational knowledge in young children.

STEM Beginnings aims to stimulate young minds and inspire them to create and cultivate curiosity toward these disciplines. As a result, they hope to be able to contribute in shaping their students’ intellectual development, opportunities for future study, and the choices of career, as well as the capability to make informed decisions in the future.

STEM Camp will run 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, 5 days a week, during summer Sessions 7 (week of August 5th) and 8 (week of August 12th) for students entering grades 2-5.
