STEM Camps

Summer Rising Camps

Summer STEM Camps provide a week of hands-on learning for students in middle and high school. Teachers train with practicing scientists and engineers from the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division to learn the knowledge and skills required of STEM professionals. Camp registration is open to rising 8th graders and the high school camp is open to rising 9th and 10th graders. Students work in teams and rotate through the various learning experiences. Students are ultimately responsible for a final presentation that captures their learning and requires their use of technology as they present to a panel of STEM professionals who judge their presentations. Each children's camp will cost $40; camps are open to the public.

PLTW WEB_1.jpg

Project Lead the Way is a well-known curriculum for engineering and until recently, provided curriculum for high school only.  Now there is curriculum for elementary school.  Students will work with the science of energy, from how energy is converted and transferred to how signals pass from cell to cell in the human brain.  Activities are hands-on with a PLTW-trained educator leading the camp.  While youngsters will learn much, they will also find that math and science are awesome and really, really fun and interesting.

Only students from a Title I elementary school with at least 95% attendance should apply.

Dates: July 16-19 and July 23-25, 2018
Times: 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
