A society’s competitive advantage will come not from how well its schools teach the multiplication and periodic tables, but from how well they stimulate imagination and creativity.

STEM Camp (5 – 8 grade)

EDNova Summer STEM + Maker Camp is perfect for STEM-motivated students from grades 5 through 8. 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 yet 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 about the topics, thus, developing more interest in meaningful learning.


Critical Writing (5 – 8 grade)

Critical Writing and Effective Argumentation

In a world of ever-expanding diversity and possibility, students need to be prepared to truly hear 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 basic research abilities needed to defend a particular position. Learning to speak on the topic, defend students’ own points, and respectfully engage with others with different points of view are all academic skills that college professors seek in their students. Not to mention it will help students thrive both socially and academically.
