NSCC offers summer STEM Camp

Staff report

Northwest State Community College will be hosting three weeks of Science, Engineering, Technology, Math, and Manufacturing (STEM) Camp for area middle school students in June and July.

NSCC faculty will provide a fun and interactive experience for students that have completed grades 5-8. The camps will be hands-on and will touch on a variety of subjects include coding, holograms and magnets, building rockets, and 3D printing, and will experiment with welding and discovering robotics.

Session 1, Maker-Facturing, held June 26-29, is for students in grades 6-8, with a focus on manufacturing skills; Session 2, Discovering STEM, held July 17-20, is for students in grades 5-6, with a focus on pre-engineering; and Session 3, Exploring STEM, held July 24-27, is for students in grades 7-8, with a focus on engineering skills.

“This is a great opportunity for kids to get out of the house and away from their televisions and video games,” said Tori Wolf, camp coordinator. “Kids will have an opportunity to see how things work and will create things themselves, utilizing the science and math behind each project.”

The camps are held 9 a.m.-3p.m. each day. Seats are still available. For more information, visit www.northweststate.edu/2017-summer-stem-camp or email twolf@northweststate.edu.
