Due to high demand through the first month of registration for the 2014 Boys & Girls Club of Troy Summer Program, a second session of the Best STEM Camp Ever has been added to accommodate Club members who still wish to participate in the STEM program this summer. While the Monday morning session is sold out, a Monday afternoon camp is now available.
This eight-week course from the Club's partners at STEM.org
will allow members to investigate & explore the latest Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math concepts through teamwork, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.
Participants will enjoy the following four two-week programs:
Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse:
Scientific strategies for surviving the day-to-day realities in the new world controlled by the new race of zombies!
Experimenting with and developing the designs and materials that make up superhero powers and uniforms-for example Iron Man, Storm, Spiderman, and Wolverine.
Finding theoretical and experimental probabilities and solving mathematical problems through outdoor games and student competitions
Building a Better Mousetrap - Goldberg Style:
Designing obstacle courses and investigating the engineering behind them using the inspiration from Rube Goldberg and the video "This Too Shall Pass” from Ok Go.
Please note that this added session does run concurrent to the Club's basketball league on Monday afternoons. The Best STEM Camp Ever is $60 per child and can be purchased when signing up for the Summer Program.
