We just completed our fabulous virtual camp for July 2021.
Campers selected to attend camp in 2020 (cancelled because of the pandemic) joined campers selected in 2021.
Each student received a Tech Trek ToolKit containing all the materials needed to successfully navigate the virtual world for a core class and the afternoon STEM activities.
Classes were small with 10-12 per class. Virtual breakout rooms for 3-5 campers and a teaching assistant were provided when working on hands-on projects. Click to read more about Core Classes. We had core classes each morning for three hours:
- Bodies by Design
- Chemistry is pHun!
- Cyber Security
- Thinkabit Wearable Tech
- Understanding Climate Change
Afternoon experiences are also hands-on learning and varied to include virtual field trips of all sorts, financial management for teens, friendship bracelet making, and an array of workshops/labs that allow campers to make things and explore STEM principles. Bet you can’t guess what some of these workshop titles represents!? Click here for more info…
