Young People's Day Camp in Queens to Offer New STEM and Robotics Program

Young People’s Day Camp in Queens will offer a new STEM enrichment program beginning in July. The premium enrichment STEM program will run from July to August, a total of four weeks. The program will consist of an elementary introduction to the fields of science, technology, engineering and math through a series of exciting, educational, and fun projects.

In the introduction to robotics section, campers will learn how to build a working robot and will also be taught an introduction to coding and application to robotics.

The programs are perfect for children ages 4-15, and each camp is operated by licensed teachers and administrators.
