  • Robotics & STEAM Summer Program

    The Allen-Stevenson Robotics and STEAM Summer Program is a unique, one-of-a-kind program, for children ages 6-12, created specifically to enhance learning through collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, persistence, and having fun! Our activities are designed around a vast and comprehensive program of Robotics, Technology, Science/Engineering, Physical Education, and S.T.E.A.M. All campers will be grouped by age/grade into one of three divisions (1st – 2nd, 3rd – 4th, and 5th – 6th graders.) Each division has its own distinct, age-appropriate program, so that as the campers develop and grow, so does our program; campers will experience new, more complex challenges and investigations at each level. A daily elective session for the older campers (ages 8 and above) provides each child with the chance to customize their own program based on interest, thus enabling them to dig deeper into their own learning.

    -------------------------

    All New Programs and Activities for 2020!

    • Virtual and Augmented Reality Lab – Campers will build their own virtual worlds by designing 3D objects, learn how to make them move and interact, and then how to import them into their imagined worlds of virtual reality!
    • Hydraulic Machines – Campers will learn how to incorporate the engineering of hydraulics into their own imaginative STEAM designs and projects.
    • Video Game Design Lab – various platforms and software.
    • Camper TV – Campers will do their own filming, editing, and design their own costumes and props as they bring their own ideas and scripts to life.
