Summer STEAM

At the Summer STEAM Institute (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics), rising 3rd-8th grade students explore what it means to live life creatively. We offer 6 weeks of engaging activities that incorporate STEAM curriculum (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) and athletics to foster imagination, collaboration and creativity in our youth.
Students work alongside professional artists, educators and cultural organizations to explore each weekly theme. Summer STEAM Institute offers different weekly themes, so check out all six weeks!

June 11 – 15, Week #1: Carolina Jams! Come “cut a record” with us! Activities will include writing lyrics, mixing and mastering tracks, and recording original songs in the recording booth on the Carolina Studios mobile music studio bus! Students will work with computer software to produce an original song and will leave the camp with their own CD. Other engaging activities will include designing cover art, choreographing dance for a music video and exploring the science of sound. This is a truly unique experience that is not to be missed!

June 18 – 22, Week #2: The Force is With Us! Join us on an amazing odyssey through outer space! We will explore scientific concepts of motion, gravity, and friction as we learn more about our fascinating solar system! Jedi training games, planetary “juggling” and “out of this world” sci-fi skits will be part of the fun. Campers will also design the space craft of the future in our maker space. (And watch out for an appearance by Darth Vader himself!)

June 25 - 29, Week #3: Theme Park Imagineering! Do you love to visit theme parks with thrilling rides, special characters, and awesome theming? Come join us for a week of planning the next big theme park! With imagination as our driving force, we will engineer, design, and create the park of the 21st century. Students will work with potential and kinetic energy as they design a thrill ride, create a fun theme park game, and stage an amazing parade! This camp could inspire the Walt Disney of the future!

July 9 – 13, Week #4: Engineering Your Future Did you know that 65% of today’s schoolchildren will work in a job that doesn’t currently exist? The employer of tomorrow will require design-based thinking, creativity and problem solving skills from their employees. This week is all about building those skills! Campers will engage in fun hands-on activities that will introduce them to exciting career pathways as they design a car, build free-standing structures, invent new paint mixtures, and design the fashion of the future. Our maker space will feature lots of opportunity for tinkering fun and campers will be encouraged to think in bold new ways!

July 16 – 20, Week #5: Toy Box 2.0! This week is all about every kid’s favorite thing: toys! We will learn how toys are designed and marketed, tell our own “toy stories” through digital animation, test and judge toys, play creative games, and best of all- design our own top toy of the future! Our maker space will be one big toy-palooza! Don’t miss this incredibly fun week!

July 23 – 27, Week #6: Magnificent Mixtures: Chemistry for Kid-Scientists! This week will be full of bubbling, fizzing, and a few (totally safe) explosions! Campers will be engaged in chemistry concepts through hands-on experiments, visual art, theater, and athletic games. (And yes, there will be tons of SLIME!)
