Philly Camp to Offer STEAM Experiences


A camp serving kids in the Philadelphia School District is providing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) experiences this summer.

The STEAM Works Studio camps are for students from the ages of 6 to 17 and will run from June 24 to Aug. 2.

Summer learning opportunities such as these let kids get all the knowledge with none of the pressure of the typical school environment.

Shayna Swaneet, the chief operating officer at STEAM Works Studio, says in a news release that these camps will help guide learners in designing, innovating and executing hands-on projects in fields like robotics, animation, machine learning and more.

The camps will be held within the district, and families can sign up through their schools. Involving children in stimulating mental activities can help prevent what experts call the “summer slide” or “summer learning loss”—a phenomenon where students start their next school year having lost some of the prior year’s academic gains.
