STEM + Maker Camp (5 – 9 grade)

EDNova Summer STEM + Maker Camp is perfect for STEM motivated students from grades 5 through 9. The main objective of this camp is to introduce our youth to the elements of STEM + Maker culture and ideas. We offer fun activities that are challenging to our campers. Our STEM + Maker Camp combines significant content with a setting that encourages a sense of discovery and excitement through hands-on problem solving and interactive exploration. Our projects are low-threshold in calculations, high-impact in STEM content. Our camp is structured so that it offers a variety of entry points for different age groups and abilities. This structure will allow students to approach STEM + Maker ideas with minimal background, but lead to deep conceptual understanding and can be connected to advanced STEM topics & ideas in the future. Campers will have a lot of fun at camp, in turn, they will become more curious at the topics, thus, develop more interest in meaningful learning. There will be a $50 material fee per week.

 

The art of debate (5 – 9 grade)

Critical Writing and Effective Argumentation

In a world of ever-expanding diversity and possibility, students need to be prepared to truly hear the others and to be able to respond in a reasoned and calm manner. This week-long section will help students think critically about ethical issues. We will develop both listening and speaking skills as well as the basics research abilities needed to defend a particular position. Learning to speak on topic, to defend students’ own points, and to respectfully engage with others with different points of view are all academic skills which college professors seek in their students. Not to mention it will help students thrive both socially and academically.

 

Advanced essay writing (5 – 9 grade)

Critical Thinking and Effective Argumentation

Essay writing, based in analyzing an argument, has become an integral part of the SAT Exam. Furthermore, it is also a crucial part of college applications in many cases as well. This section will focus on reading and writing strategies. The curriculum will emphasize on close reading and writing in a variety of essay styles. Students will learn how to effectively analyze an argument to making an effective argument of their own.  Students will perform reasoning assessment to learn how we decide whether or not to trust a website and how to decide which sources are relevant for an argument being made. Students will gain confidence in their ability to think critically about abstract philosophical concepts and to push themselves outside of their comfort zone.

 

Chinese for Absolute beginners (5 – 8 grade)

Join us for our immersion Chinese Language program for absolute beginners this Summer!

We will have lots of fun learning the Chinese language. We offer a variety of amazing activities including games, crafts, Chinese calligraphy, paper cutting, and much, much more! Our teachers create various activities and projects for our campers each year. At the end of each camp, we record performances that students help put together to showcase newly acquired language skills. From the moment campers step foot at EDNova Summer Camp, they will be fully immersed in Chinese culture and language. Our creative teachers carefully curate all activities to encourage children to learn, think, and communicate in Mandarin; making their experience interesting and fun in a relaxed and nurturing environment.

During the week-long camp, campers will usually recognize and write 40 – 50 Chinese (simplified) characters. They will also able to count from 1- 100, to say greetings, and self-introductions. In addition, they will learn vocabularies for direct family members, primary colors, and year/month/date. This camp is perfect for campers who has no prior knowledge and would like to get a taste of Chinese language.
