Benefits of STEM Summer Camps for Elementary School Students

Younger Students Crave Exploration and Discovery

Young kids are innately curious. Why? Everything is brand new! As a result, they're eager for exploration and situations that push them to ask "why?"—situations and activities where they can observe and experience so they can then analyze and connect dots.  Those inquisitive needs are best met with "things" to play with and explore - like tech - or else that unbridled curiosity either fades, or won’t reach max levels.

Early Childhood Learning Creates Powerful Outcomes

A young mind exposed to any activity usually translates into better familiarity with that activity, and the increased likelihood of an interest sticking for years and years. Reason being, preconceived notions can get in a child's way of wanting to explore what is in front of them. Is STEM cool? Is it hard? There isn't any way for kids to build up barriers if you're able to get them going in STEM before they are aware such barriers exist.

Benefits of STEM Summer Camps for Middle School Students

STEM Summer Camps Fill an Educational Void

For today's middle schoolers, there's an abundance of info, courses, activities, and tutorials readily available on any subject. The challenge is, the place where most kids spend their time - school - doesn’t traditionally offer STEM subjects. Some do, and more are every day, but it’s still a small fraction of schools that are able to invest in STEM. Thus, STEM summer camps offer the opportunity for middle schoolers to dive into such learning and build valuable STEM skills

Students Experience a New Friendship-Building

One benefit of summer camp is the social aspect, right? But with a specialized STEM summer camp, students are making friends with like-minded peers. The result is relationships that extend beyond a weeklong friendship and into long-term networking. Students leave with names to call on when they need help with STEM projects, but also when it comes time to find internships or even launch businesses. 

Online Programs Provide the Socialization Kids Need

Sometimes, attending an in-person summer program isn't an option. So, virtual summer programs fill a socialization void, giving kids the chance to learn in small groups, and interact with other kids even with social distancing. This is different than a typical classroom setup where parents might see children on-screen with 30 or more kids—all of whom need to be muted in order for instruction to take place. 

Benefits of STEM Summer Camps for High School Students

Fun and Cool Career Opportunities

There is a misconception that STEM is all coding and lab coats. Yes, disciplines like coding are a huge part of STEM, but the act of coding extends beyond a computer screen and complex languages. STEM is in sports, music, and other forms of entertainment. Game design? Awesome. Social media? Yes. STEM touches a multitude of subjects, which means there are related careers available for any interest imaginable. 

Skill-Building for In-Demand Jobs

We want our kids to enjoy what they end up doing for a living, but we also want them to be well-compensated. STEM jobs pay well, with median earnings nearly double that of non-STEM counterparts. These aren’t "cross your fingers," once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Millions of STEM jobs are going unfilled each year, and the only scarcity is the talent available to fill them. Such skill-building takes place at a STEM camp and in STEM enrichment activities.

Why is coding important for kids & teens?

Computer Science is a rapidly growing STEM field. According to Code.org co-founder Hadi Partovi, “Although only 10 percent of schools teach computer science, even one hour of exposure can be enough to change a student’s life, as it did mine. In the 21st century, this isn’t just a course you study to get a job in software—it’s important to learn even if you want to be a nurse, a journalist, an accountant, a lawyer, or even a president.”

There are plenty of reasons why your child should learn to code, and so we wholeheartedly believe programming to be a vital skill for today’s youth. So do Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Will.i.am, and other notable figures. Read more about why kids should learn coding, and watch the video that has garnered over 14 million views since its release.

What about engineering?

Space, sports, and rollercoasters. What could any of these things possibly have to do with each other? Believe it or not, they're all areas where you can apply engineering!

Engineering isn't just relegated to civil engineering and infrastructure, but spans into chemical engineering, electrical, mechanical, environmental, computer hardware, and much more. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, engineering jobs are projected to grow 7% by 2026. Read more about the unique jobs you can land with an engineering degree

How is an STEM camp different than school?

With eLearning on the rise, many parents are left wondering how an enrichment program might be different from something like distance learning, especially those where kids are learning in groups with other students.

It boils down to the fact that many online school activities gather large groups, sometimes 30+ students, in a single Zoom call. Then, because of the volume, teachers have no choice but to mute all participants in order to control the chaos. 

With summer enrichment options, the student to instructor ratios are much lower. It's an ideal size, offering active instruction, and the perfect blend of small-group collaboration and individual attention—allowing for everyone's voice to be heard.
