Have you ever wanted to develop your own video game? Do you want to create a sustainable colony on Mars? Does the thought of designing your own robot and pitting it against others fill you with joy? Virtual, day camp or residential, 6th-10th grade, GSSM has unique offerings for almost every age and interest.
Summer STEM - Virtual Camp
Summer STEM is GSSM’s premier virtual camp for rising 6th-10th graders. For one week, campers will learn by experience with a hands-on project. Students will interact with their peers and professor twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Students spend time offline working through their projects, while teachers are available for help sessions throughout the day. Materials needed for projects will be sent to students in a care package before camp. A wide variety of courses are offered during Summer STEM, including but are not limited to, Anatomy, Engineering Around Town, Graphic Design, and Sports Science!
GoSciTech - Residential Camp
GSSM's annual week-long residential summer camp provides a hands-on experience for science and tech enthusiasts. Courses include Anatomy & Physiology, Greatest Hits of Math, Graphic Design, Anthropology, Arduino Rootics, Astrophysics, and many more. Open to rising 8th, 9th, and 10th graders in South Carolina.
CREATEng - Day Camp
A one-of-a-kind, four-day immersion into engineering and design thinking for rising 7th, 8th and 9th graders in counties across the state. Students take on the role of NASA engineers charged with developing a sustainable colony on Mars. Working through project-based, hands-on team challenges, students learn what engineering is and what engineers do.
iTEAMS Xtreme - Day Camp
A summer day camp for 6th, 7th and 8th graders interested in computer science and technology in partner school districts across the state. Explore the world of microcontrollers, electronics and circuits through Arduino technology. In the Arduino & Robotics track, learn how to program your very own microcontrolled robot and pit it against other students' robots in campwide competitions such as Maze Runner and Robot Wars. In the Game Design track, create and play 2D and 3D multiplatform games in campwide competitions.
