What do the Camps Include?
The STREAMWORKS summer camps cover a wide variety of different skills and incorporate these skills into curriculums that are enjoyable for kids of all age groups. In addition, we also offer skill-focused camps to develop specific skills in the area of their interest. STREAMWORKS covers Computer Aided Design (CAD) or 3D modeling, electronics and circuitry, coding, and mechanics in camps. However, for the kids who haven’t really found their interests, STREAMWORKS will continue to create camps that will cover multiple ideas on a broad spectrum. Throughout the week, students will focus on a different skill every day that correlates with the camp’s overall theme. For example, on day one, a child’s task might be to build a robot chassis, which ties into the idea of mechanics. On day two, your child would design an electronic control board panel, which will introduce them to 3D modeling. On day three, there may be a lecture on coding the robot, introducing students to computer science, with the following days contributing to the overall goal of the camp. Not only does STREMWORKS provide the curriculum and lectures for these activities, but we also include all necessary materials to perform these activities. Instructors will provide a step-by-step instruction, walking the students through each activity and giving them essential information in order to guarantee success. Once students have established a foundation, our instructors will encourage students to be creative and put their newly learned skills to the test. At STREAMWORKS, we believe that students learn the most when they innovate and solve problems on their own. Although our instructors will give them the information, we make it the job of the students to apply this new knowledge with the projects throughout the week. Along with giving the students the freedom to create and problem solve, all of the projects in the summer camps will include a hands-on element. Students better comprehend the information when they can view and experience these subjects in real life. For example, you can lecture kids about the forces of flight, like lift and trust; however, students really connect and understand the importance of what they are being taught when they design model rockets. This activity applies the information and allows students to see it in action. Overall, our summer camps provide students with a foundation to aid them in becoming the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, engineers, medical specialists, chemists, etc.
