STEAM Online Summer Camp

The Bucks IU's enormously popular Mobile FAB LAB is now offering a STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math) Online Summer Camp!

About this Event
Join us for this fun STEAM learning experience! Campers will all receive their own personal CAMP BOX, shipped directly to their home prior to the start of camp. Each box will include everything they will need to participate, including activity guides.

Each week of camp will include a set of three core activities; one engineering, one science, and one coding based. Additionally, campers will receive a set of three optional activities. All activities offer both 'no tech' or 'low tech' options to allow students to experiment and experience at the level at which they are most comfortable. BONUS: Every camp box will include an Ozobot robot (a $100 value)!

WEEK 1 July 20-23, 2020: This week's camp theme is 'Going Places'. Campers' imaginations will take off as they create balloon-powered vehicles, rocket launchers, and code their Ozobot! Camp Boxes will include either a copy of Going Places by Peter and Paul Reynolds or an assortment of exciting short articles specially selected to inspire and encourage your imagination!

WEEK 2 July 27-30, 2020: This week's camp theme is 'The Great Outdoors.' Campers' imaginations will take off as they explore the outdoors with this week's activities and code their Ozobot to explore the outdoors! Camp Boxes will include either a book or assortment of exciting short articles specially selected to inspire and encourage your imagination!

Access to an internet-enabled device is necessary to join the virtual sessions. Registrants will be given options regarding when is the best time of day for their camper to join the online sessions.
