La Salle College High School is excited to offer its original STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Camp to students entering grades 5, 6, 7 and 8! This weeklong science camp is an experiential learning opportunity unlike any other.  Each of the 5 full days of camp expose participants to an academically enriched interconnection between the STEM disciplines.  An exciting team challenge approach makes learning stimulating, engaging and fun.   

This year’s theme titled “Out of this World – Exploring New Space Frontiers in our Galaxy and Beyond” will encourage students to “think like astronauts” and investigate the physics of rocket propulsion, discuss the biology of hypothetical life on other planets, and build robots and rovers than rely on the sun’s energy to move!  As future scientifically minded leaders, it becomes more important than ever to learn to make choices that keep us strong and better able to serve tomorrow’s society.   

Based heavily on the lab experience and data collection, the camp includes regular applications of the engineering-design process.  Segments of automation and programming will be incorporated throughout the week – no prior robotics/coding experience is necessary.  Experimentation via the iterative design process is also part of the camp curriculum.  A team approach to problem solving will be emphasized.   

Indoor and outdoor activities are planned.  The use of La Salle’s environmental learning spaces, trails and fields may be utilized, and campers can expect a balance of recreation and academic experiences throughout their camp day.
