Be INNOVATIVE this Summer!
Engineers have the power to change the world one idea at a time. They dream up creative, practical solutions and work with teams of smart, inspiring people to address the Grand Challenges for Engineering facing us in the 21st Century. Help us inspire the next generation of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) heroes by hosting an Innovation Camp and unlocking the fun of engineering.
Innovation Camps are designed to spark
Innovation Camps, hosted by the STEM Council at Skillpoint Alliance, spark interest in STEM careers
through hands-on, project-based learning in robotics, solar design, making, 3D worlds and game design.
Campers work in teams to search for solutions, tackle challenging STEM content, design their own
creations, and showcase their finished product.
Students and teachers participate in:
- team building activities;
- instruction and experimentation;
- project design;
- guest speakers; and
- field trips
Innovation Camps encourage parent and student interest in innovative, career-based STEM programs being offered in their communities; prepare teachers to implement rigorous, project-based learning techniques in a low-stakes environment; and provide summer mentoring and job opportunities for low-income high school students.
By hosting low-cost summer camps at high-tech companies, Skillpoint Alliance, or students’ neighborhood high schools, Innovation Camps remove barriers to participation in STEM activities for economically disadvantaged and at-risk students while actively addressing summer learning loss. By incorporating innovative, real-world design challenges and using industry-standard software tools, Innovation Camps pave the way for collaboration with local STEM industry partners and focus student career trajectories on the high tech jobs available in the region.
Skillpoint Alliance works directly with teachers, principals and district administrators to design, implement and evaluate these programs. This flexible model allows educators to build the program that best fits their needs. Training and materials provided leave the teacher equipped with activities, supplies and experience after participating.
