Engineering summer camps for students entering 9th grade

March 25, 2014

From the CHS STEM Academy:

The summer does not need to be a time where knowledge is lost and excitement dwindles. Too often, learners lose focus and interest from the long months spent away from school. While we all can use a rest, tools become rusty and dull if they are not used. Keeping kids interested is the goal of the STEM Summer Enrichment program.

We offer CHS STEM Academy learners the opportunity to continue to use their math and science skills in a fun, exciting and relaxed environment. This is also the perfect opportunity for students to get to know their fellow STEM classmates. STEM learners will be spending a lot of time together over the next few years. During the camp, learners will work on team projects designed to not only teach about engineering, but to also teach teamwork, leadership, and cooperation.

In order to ensure that we have adequate staffing and supplies on hand for you, we have to have your enrollment fee by May 10, 2014. For a printable pdf, please click STEM Summer camp flyer 2014.
