August 28-SEPTEMBER 1
Serving ABSS Families
STEM + Art = Fun
The Camp Experience Includes:
A one-week STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) camp that offers a fantastic opportunity to engage young minds in a wide range of hands-on, educational, and fun activities. Once registration is completed you will be invoiced via our brightwheel system and receive a welcome to camp email along with our camp handbook.
Here's a sample of our schedule of activities for the week:
**Day 1: Science Exploration Day**
1. **Introduction to the Scientific Method**: Campers engage with the scientific method and its importance in conducting experiments.
2. **Chemistry Lab**: Learners will conduct a science experiment selecting from making slime or elephant tooth paste
3. **Nature Walk and Observation**: Campers will explore the outdoor community, identify plants and bugs, and record observations in science journals, as well as engage in a scavenger hunt
4. **Guest Speaker**:Learners will engage with a scientist in order to ask questions about their role and duties.
**Day 2: Technology and Coding Day**
1. **Introduction to Coding**: Learners will engage in coding activities throughout the day
2. **Hands-on Coding Workshop**: Campers will use beginner-friendly coding platforms to create simple programs or games.
3. **Robotics Workshop**: Introduce campers to basic robotics concepts and allow them to build and program simple robots out of recycled materials.
4. **Virtual Reality (VR) Experience**: Learners will attend a VR experience field trip to showcase technology's potential for immersive learning right in the mall.
**Day 3: Engineering and Design Day**
1. **Introduction to Engineering**: Learners will learn the role of engineers and the engineering design process.
2. **Bridge Building Challenge**: Campers can design and build bridges using various materials to test their strength.
3. **Paper Airplane Competition**: Engage campers in a friendly competition to design and fly the farthest-flying paper airplanes.
4. **Guest Engineer**: Campers will meet a real life engineer and engage in a workshop activity.
**Day 4: Arts and Creativity Day**
1. **STEAM Art Projects**: Campers will combine science, math, and creativity in art projects, such as fractal art or geometric sculptures.
2. **Musical Science**: Learners will explore the science of sound and music by creating project based instruments and composing music.
3. **Stop-Motion Animation**: Campers can work in teams to create stop-motion animations related to science or technology themes.
4. **Guest Artist**: A local artist will share their expertise and demonstrate how art can intersect with STEM disciplines.
**Day 5: Math and Problem-Solving Day**
1. **Math Puzzles and Games**: Engage campers in interactive math puzzles and games to enhance problem-solving skills.
2. **Math Scavenger Hunt**: Organize a scavenger hunt with math-related clues and challenges.
3. **Outdoor Geometry**: Explore geometry concepts outdoors by measuring angles, shapes, and patterns in the environment.
4. **Camp Celebration**: Host a closing ceremony where campers can showcase their favorite projects and activities.
