It’s no secret that we need more leaders who are skilled in the STEAM fields. If you want to instill a love of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics in your child, it helps to start them young. Concordia’s School of Education aims to help you do just that through its annual STEAM camp offerings.

STEAM Camps offer exciting, hands-on learning opportunities for youth entering grades 3-8 in the fall. The camp sessions are created by content specialists, and are designed to be fun, full of learning, and distinctively Christian, with a special emphasis on the STEAM curriculum areas. These summer camps run for one week, three hours per day. The cost is $99 per camp. Scholarships may be available in some locations for students qualifying for free or reduced lunch.

Breakout the Bubbles, Balloons, and Balls

Bubbles, balloons, and balls were fun to play with when you were young.  See how they can be just as intriguing to aspiring engineers.  Explore the properties of bubbles and create the longest lasting, largest, and most interestingly shaped bubbles.  Design air balloons for lifting payloads off the ground.   Investigate the physics that allow balls to bounce the highest or be thrown the furthest.  What features make a ball ideal for a sport?  How might you design a ball for a new sport?  Finally, use your spherical discoveries to “break out” of camp in a game at the end of the week.

Lights, Camera, Action

Have you ever dreamed of creating your own movie? Well, here is your chance! Explore the elements of movie making. Investigate the special effects lighting can have when creating the scene. Create things that look larger, smaller, or just different using optical illusions. Develop unusual sound effects like an audio engineer. Learn how cameras work to take pictures that are then used to create motion. Produce your own movie using all of the special techniques you discover, complete with music and credits.
