STEM Santa Fe News:
STEM Santa Fe is hosting the Summer 2020 Camps Monday through Friday during the months of June and July.
Camps meet virtually on Zoom with parents picking up materials in Santa Fe/Española by arrangement. These camps are tailored for students rising into 6th to 12th grade.
Registration is now open but space is limited. This camp is open to Northern New Mexico students in Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Taos, San Miguel, Mora, Sandoval and Rio Arriba. There is a $25 fee, but waived upon request.
Camps range from a beginner course in 3D Design to a high school level Engineering project building solar sun trackers, to a coding camp in app development. The 3D design camp is offered in English and Spanish.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit New Mexico, STEM Santa Fe has moved its programming virtually, meeting with students virtually to debug their smart greenhouses that they built, holding virtual math festivals, and now running project-based summer camps virtually.
“In response to COVID-19 crisis, and as it became evident that this pandemic is not going away any time soon, we couldn’t sit back and wait,” said STEM Santa Fe Founder and CEO Lina Germann. “We had to keep engaging students with their learning and keeping their minds active. We hope the silver lining here is that we can now reach more students in Northern New Mexico and that the camps are a family affair.”
STEM Santa Fe is grateful for the sponsors of its camps: Los Alamos National Lab/TRIAD, LANL Foundation, National Center for Genome Resources/NSF, Santa Fe Community Foundation, Wildflower International, Meow Wolf, N3B Los Alamos, Descartes Labs, Del Norte Credit Union and Sandia National Labs.
Camps begin June 8 and continue throughout July. More camps will be planned as the need arises. Visit www.stemsantafe.org for more information and how to register or contact STEM Santa Fe at: (505).570.5402.
