STEM/Maker + MATH Camp (5 – 9 grade)
EDNova Summer STEM/Maker + MATH Camp aims at STEM & mathematically motivated students from grades 5 through 9. The main objective of this camp is to introduce our youth to the elements of STEM & mathematical culture and ideas using age-appropriate activities. The Math Camp combines significant content with a setting that encourages a sense of discovery and excitement about STEM & Mathematics through problem solving and interactive exploration. Our hands-on projects are low-threshold in calculations, high-impact in STEM & Math Content. Our STEM/Maker + Math 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 & Math ideas with minimal background, but lead to deep concepts and can be connected to advanced STEM topics & Mathematical ideas in the future. Campers will have more interest, in turn, they will have the most fun while conducting meaningful learning. There will be a $50 material fee per week.
For STEM/Maker topics, campers will be learning theories, concepts, and working on the following hands-on projects projects:
- 7/10-7/14: Arduino & Circuitry*
- 7/17-7/21: Engineering*
- 7/24-7/28: Robotics & Mechanics*
- 7/31-8/04: 5-6 graders – Digital Animation, Still Motion & Augmented Reality
- 7/31-8/04: 7-9 graders – Beginning Game Design with JAVA
- 8/07-8/11: 5-6 graders – 3-D Design and Printing
- 8/07-8/11: 7-9 graders – Beginning Game Design with JAVA
- 8/14-8/18: Arduino & Circuitry*
- 7/10-7/14: Introduction to Logic
- 7/17-7/21: Basic Combinatorics
- 7/24-7/28: Basic Probability Theory
- 7/31-8/04: Basic Set Theory + Pascal Triangle
- 8/07-8/11: Geometric Constructions + Fractals
- 8/14-8/18: Introduction to Mathematical Proofs
Maker Camp (5 – 9 grade)
EDNova Summer Maker Camp is a proud official affiliate of the Make Camp created by the Make Media that founded and produces the Makers Faire, publishes the Make: magazine, and organizer of the Maker Camp. As the Make: Magazine puts it “Maker Camp is where you need to spend your summer. It is for anyone who is interested in DIY, making, creating, crafting, hacking, tinkering, and learning, especially kids.” Every day young Makers complete engineering projects and art projects with in the Maker Camp curriculum that is just right for them and designed to teach them to innovate & solve problems using science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The Maker projects are not just designed to give them something to Make but to guide them as they Make themselves. Young Makers are seldom satisfied with someone else’s line of inquiry. Therefore, we provide our young makers freedom they need to pursue even better questions – their own. They are learning about who they are becoming as people in the world, especially in relation to others. There will be a $50 material fee per week.
