STEAM CAMP
 

STEM + ART = STEAM
.  We are combining art with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to give us STEAM.  


July 19-21,  and August 9-11
$60 each session




During this 3 day camp youth will learn the science behind glass fusing, create fused artwork and also learn beginning robotics programming.  Students will be introduced to programming Dash and Dot robots and will also use an Osmo.  Classes are taught by teachers with teaching degrees who have worked in the Boise School district for 10+ years.

We have found that it works best for participants to have completed 3rd grade.  This reading level gives them the best possibility for success  in programming the robots and reading  and understanding the material.  However, children ages 5-8 may participate with adult help and there is no upper age limit.

Participants may choose 1 session or both sessions for each day.  Additional choices include 1 day , 2, or all 3.  A session is 3 hours in length and costs $65 for each one.  If attending both sessions in a single day, please send your child with a sack lunch.  There will be a one hour break between the sessions and supervision will be provided.

The art activity is different for each session.  In addition, each student's progress on the programming for the robots is tracked individually.  Therefore, students may participate  once or as many times as desired.   Challenges will build on previous lessons completed.
