The Explore 2000 Middle School announced the opening of registration for its Science, Technology, engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Summer Camp 2016, which will take place from July 18th through July 29th. Students entering fifth through eighth grades in the fall of 2016 are eligible to apply and will be taught by certified teachers from Explore 2000 and certified facilitators from STEM Education, LLC.
"We are excited for the 2016 STEM Summer Camp," said Explore 2000 Principal Amy Lin-Rodriguez. "Thanks in part to the HCST Foundation, students will have the opportunity to learn about the STEM field in a fun and interactive manner."
The STEM Summer Camp seeks to prepare campers for the future as engineers, scientists, business marketing and creative professional. Through comprehensive math and science lessons, the camper will better understand the concepts and skills needed to be tomorrow's technology and business leaders.
"This is an innovative approach to teaching, we believe that proper instruction, teamwork, competition and challenge will allow our campers to build a passion for the STEM field," said Lin-Rodriguez.
Through the national STEM Initiative, campers will learn the STEM field by designing and racing model race cars and participating in a Student Racecar Challenge. The students will compete as part of a team using electric radio control cars.
The tuition will be $375 for the two week session, and includes all supplies and camper t-shirts. Those interested in taking part in the STEM Summer Camp can call (201) 631-6396. http://www.hcstonline.org/explore2000/stem-camp.html
