The Art of STEM is a unique track out experience for elementary aged children, 5 - 11, that fosters socialization and stimulating activity while introducing the core concepts of performing arts and STEM. These concepts are presented in a way that is engaging and accessible for all ages. Run by experienced educators in a 1 to 10 group ratio, we maintain the belief that while children are on break from school they gain a great deal of social development from a low stakes and positive environment, while still learning basic lessons in science, coding, and the performing arts.
Within our camps, children will build confidence, socialize, think critically, and realize their creative potential while participating in science experiments, and rudimentary coding. Each week we also produce a play where they will build costumes, define their roles, and work in a collaborative setting. Children will work with each other in an array of structured environments to achieve a basic theatrical, artistic, or scientific goal, but we believe just as important as lesson based activities is an emphasis on free play, where a child develops social skills and is allowed to experiment with their creative side. We incorporate this sense of independence and creativity into the activities we offer and their academic success, with the belief that they will take these lessons with them as they develop into creative, socialized adults.
