The Georgia Tech University STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) Camp will be held from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday, July 14-18, for first- through fifth-grade students at Liberty Elementary School.
The camp, titled “Full STEAM Ahead: Camp Rock!,” is a full day of hands-on learning. The cost for the week-long camp is $135 per student. The program will be taught by a mixture of Georgia Tech staff, Georgia Tech students, and area science and math teachers.
“Full STEAM Ahead” is a program designed to enhance curiosity and enthusiasm for science, math, engineering, arts and technology. While attending the camp, students will perform hands-on experiments and participate in learning activities, such as making their own edible rocks, creating volcanoes that will really erupt and figuring out what makes quick sand quick. Attendees will rotate between stations to experience different student-centered projects along with problem-solving, challenges, cooperative activities and contests.
The Georgia Tech team also will teach students the importance of technology and how to use it. One project involves the technology behind building apps, which will teach students what goes into creating apps for smartphones and tablets. Students will create their own iPad apps and present their projects at a showcase event at
2 p.m. Friday, July 18.
To register for “Full STEAM Ahead: Camp Rock,” go to savannah.gatech.edu/summer-camps. Space is limited, and the last day to sign-up is today (Friday).
