Virtual STEM Summer Camp for Ages 7-12

July 07, 2020

News - July20 - TCNJ Camp

 

This virtual STEM summer camp is for students ages 7–12 on an online learning platform, Google Classroom. With this curated educational experience, students can participate in three modules – STEM, Coding, and Science. Each module is three weeks long, with each week taking on a different theme. Your child can participate in as many as all nine weeks, or as little as one. This virtual summer camp will immerse your child in independent, curated online experiences that will expose him or her to STEM and Engineering fields, and will connect these fields to his or her interests and everyday life.

By joining this camp, your child will immerse him or herself into a fully virtual experience, filled with educational modules teaching skills and real-world applications that can be directly aligned with STEM and Engineering careers. Each day's experience will go live at 9:00 AM every day, but the camper can interact with it on a day and time that works for the camper and YOU. Each day, pre-recorded focused experience expanding upon the week’s theme will be posted. This experience will follow a consistent format; 15 minutes of video engagement, 30-45 of an activity, 15 minutes of connections to careers, everyday life, and academics. The focused experience will require little to no parent involvement. Following the focused experience, students may choose take part in a 2-3 hour enrichment opportunity.
