Each day the presenters (lead pioneers) will complete activities with the participants (pioneers) in relation to the focal point of the day. In addition to the interactive activities, pioneers will learn about notable figures in S.T.E.A.M. Pioneers will be asked to read along and answer questions about figures throughout the camp.
What is S.T.E.A.M.?
S.T.E.A.M. stands for 'Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math.' It’s an approach to teaching and learning in which STEM education principles are taught through the arts. It is the intentional weaving of academic study with arts disciplines such as visual art, dance, music, and theater,
What We Will Do
Each day the presenter (lead pioneer) will complete a S.T.E.A.M. related project with the participants (pioneers).
What We Will Learn
The pioneers will additionally learn about a notable S.T.E.A.M. figure who is making or has made major strides in their career/industry.
It is our ultimate goal to expose the pioneers to an array of life options while encouraging them that the sky's the limit. Nothing is impossible because great things have been accomplished!
