Camp STEM for Your K-6 Kids over Fall Break

Vol State and community parents looking for something for their children to do during fall school break can use the opportunity to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math. Those areas make up what is referred to as STEM. Camp STEM for kids will provide hands-on educational fun. The camp will be held on the Vol State Gallatin Campus from October 12-16. The science camp is designed for kids in K-6. The students will use Vol State science labs and other facilities. The activities are taught by area grade school teachers. Topics covered include Earth Science, Astronomy, Aerospace, and Robotics.

“Camp STEM gives local students the opportunity to explore science in a way that challenges and stimulates them while broadening their horizons through building, creating, and designing,” said organizer, Beth Moore. “These activities give them skills that have real-world applications and allow them to get an early start on their future.” 

Camp STEM started at Middle Tennessee State University several years ago. The popularity is bringing it to new locations. The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The cost is $125 for the week. For more information about the camp and to register, visit the website at www.campstem.us/register/
