Summer STEM Virtual Camp

Make this summer one to remember no matter where you are.

Not Your Typical Virtual Course

Join us this summer for a live, online project-based learning opportunity for rising 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th graders! You'll log in twice a day to interact with your classmates and instructor, and you'll spend some time offline working on self-guided projects. Your instructor will even have virtual "office hours" to help you work through any questions or challenges in real-time! Most of the materials needed for projects will be sent to students in the Summer STEM kit before camp.
