Summer STEAM Camp

July 30 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until August 2, 2024


Grab your lab coat and goggles and join us this summer at Explore & More’s Tinker Camp!

Spend the week exploring STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) topics and design challenges that range from building robots to understanding rocket ships.

Through loosely structured challenges and puzzles, students will practice imagining and finding solutions as they stretch their minds in new ways to build structures out of spaghetti, break secret codes, create silly inventions, and more.

Take a break from technology and focus on being imaginative, silly, and scrappy: that’s all you need to have fun! Discover the true maker in you!
