Science! STEM!!

Science! STEM!!

STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning is more important than ever before. It has become a national movement. At Destination Science, we say “Science is a Way of Thinking!” When we know how to “do” science, we know how to be creative, critical, and organized thinkers and problem solvers. STEM is the educational backbone we use at Destination Science to keep our campers engaged in the world of science. By combining these four disciplines, we’re able to ensure that every student leaves camp with a new sense of empowerment, critical thinking, creative skills, and a collaborative mindset in solving problems.

TOP-NOTCH TEACHERS!

SCIENCE PREPARES KIDS FOR LIFE

We make it fun and easy for kids to be excited, curious & confident about science! Children appreciate and value the wonder of the world around them and take better care of it now, and as adults. Developing curiosity makes kids lifelong learners about everything.

We develop creativity, imagination, and the emotional intelligence needed to collaborate and develop great relationships with others. Our activities, teach kids how to ask great questions and how to wonder. We have special time every day for games and activities where children work with others to solve fun challenges and problems.

Campers will have their interest sparked in ways that motivate them to study science with confidence and enthusiasm. Encouraging kids to consider careers in science, engineering, and technology. The imaginative thinking that we develop is also necessary in design, art, music, and other creative fields. That’s good for them, and good for the world.

CAMPING EXPERIENCE

CAMPING EXPERIENCE

A typical day at camp includes both indoor and outdoor science activities, outdoor games, and one super-fun rally! After checking in and getting the day started, we’ll start with our first science station of the day, this activity includes a long-term project that will be completed by Friday. From there, we grab our snack and head outside to experience some outside action. Some of our outside activities include games with a SPLASH, so be prepared for some watery fun!

Next up…Engineering 2018! Campers will work in small teams to design creative solutions to fun challenges. Followed by lunch & fun group games. We will round out the day with our third exciting science station until it is time to say goodbye at 3:00, where we wrap up the lessons of the day and get ready for a whole new day of science tomorrow!
