We know our kids love their devices so why not let them learn what is behind the screen. From learning to code and programming to building robots and other devices kids can attend one of these very cool tech-related camps! These camps offer a diverse array of technologies to try out.
The seven weeks Arts and Robots Summer Camp will introduce children to science in a fun and engaging ways.
Programming robots, making science inspired-art and creating make-and-take objects will ignite children’s curiosity and enhance problem-solving skills.
Walks in the park and other physical activities will be included.

What: Some STEM camps are taught by scientists. Beam Center is spearheaded by artists, designers, filmmakers, musicians, and engineers in a quest to demonstrate that technology doesn’t just have to be ones and zeroes that make blips on a screen, but real-world items that can be used to have real-world fun. Here, eco-friendly, recycled raw materials used to create projects might include wood, cloth, rubber, and cardboard. Collaboration and interdisciplinary connections are strongly encouraged, and the end result just might be your very own functional, soap-box racer, culminating with an annual derby for all!
