STREAMsation Summer Camps

 

The STREAMsation summer program is a summer camp for students in grade 1st through 8th centered around Science, Technology, Reading/Language Arts, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Students will use both modern and ancient technology to participate in hands-on activities to explore and expand their understanding in the STREAM areas. 

 

Each week of camp will provide activities focused around specific scientific focuses with classes implementing additional activities focused around robotics or the nepohualtzitzin. 

 

The robotics centered classes will include activities using either the LEGO Mindstorm EV3 or Ozobots. The Nepohualtzitzin centered classes will learn about ancient Mayan culture through the use of the nepohualtzitzin, an ancient Mayan abacaus.
