Summer STEAM Camp
presented by Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe
Hello friends. I’m Hannah Weiss, the new Director of Education at TSCW and I am so excited to kick off my first summer with the center by introducing virtual STEAM education that is cutting-edge, safe, and fun.
Summer 2020 is going to be unlike any we have known, and I know that many of us will miss summer opportunities just as we missed the end of the school year. While it's true that Summer STEAM Camp will not be in person, our programming is full of innovative and imaginative activities that will excite your camper about exploring STEAM. Campers will have both face-to-face virtual interactions and self-guided challenges that make use of screen-free time. Digital learning is now more important then ever and summer experiences like these are necessary to fight not just the summer slide, but the COVID slide as well.
Below are details about Summer STEAM Camp, but if you don't find the info you need, feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to meeting your camper and enriching their summer with some STEAM-y educational fun!
How does virtual camp work? Summer STEAM Camp is a virtual education program that offers a mix of online and offline experiences.
Your child can participate in online portions from anywhere internet is available.
When campers are offline and engaged in self-guided activiities, they are encouraged to work indoors or out with safe distancing in mind.
Synchronous programming is combined with self-guided activities and regular check-ins throughout the process.
Campers will be asked to submit completed or in-progress work to promote engagement and participation.
How does my child attend STEAM Camp? Once you register, we email a log-in link and instructions so you and your child can easily join other campers online. You'll also receive info on a platform such as padlet or Nearpod that is used to organize challenges, guidance, Zoom rooms, and any additional material.
What supplies are needed? Most sessions require basic supplies found in most homes (supply list is provided). Tech equipment for Youth Coding and Green Energy Camps are included with the fee (shipping additional).
