Encouraging Interest in STEM through Summer Robotics Camp

Summer camps provide an opportunity for children with similar interests to come together for a week, or longer, to gain a unique experience based upon those interests. These camps have been utilized as a means of increase student interest and awareness in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

This STEM Champ’s camp utilised a combination of visual, build activities, and competitions to keep students engaged, teach them about various science and engineering disciplines, and have a fun experience.

Robots provided an ideal platform for introducing a large number of STEM topics in a fun and engaging way. Through a single learning activity, campers are introduced to topics related to mathematics, physics, electrical engineer, computer engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering.

Day 1: Monday’s goal is to provide a foundation for computing and electronics.

Day 2: The second day’s focus was on introducing the students to robots and their sensors.

Day 3: With a foundation on what robots are and how they perceive the environment, the third day focuses on robot motion and then the basics of robot control where perception and action are tied together.

Day 4: The fourth morning focuses on students learning to write their own programs.

Day 5: The Bot competition will be held.

Lessons Learned : Using competitions provide a great tool to encourage students to apply what they learned and reinforce their earlier build experiences. The bots competition encourage students to focus both on hardware and software. Many of the campers built upon their previous robots rather than starting from scratch. The talent show will allow students to showcase both their creativity and the diversity of their experience. Many of the build activities will be focused upon robots that wander and explore. For the talent show, robots will be developed that are more creative, aesthetic, etc.

Benefits of STEM Summer Camps for Grades 6 and above

  • Easier transition from middle school to high school– Summer camps are a perfect way to get your middle school child ready for the challenges of high school. The transition from middle school to high school often turns out to be a stressful experience, because high school processes differ from the ones of middle school quite a bit. STEM summer camps can give middle schoolers an idea of what can await them in a high school.
  • A chance to improve the problem areas – If your child is falling behind with the STEM disciplines, a STEM summer camp is a great opportunity to catch up with these subjects. In STEM summer camps, the kids and teens study with smaller groups, in a more fun and relaxed environment. Smaller numbers of students give the teacher more time to focus on each student individually and thus achieve better results. Moreover, teachers at STEM camps can use different teaching methods, which can sometimes work miracles and help your child in their struggle with technical subjects.
  • Career development opportunities – If your child already shows interest in science and technology, then probably this hobby will turn into a career. Therefore, it is important to support their interests at early stages and let them participate in one of the STEM summer programs. Through field trips as well as hands-on exercises and experiments, the kids strengthen and develop their scientific and social skills, laying down the first career milestone.
  • An opportunity to pump up the social skills – Summer camps, especially the STEM summer camps, involve lots of teamwork and socializing. It is a great chance to meet new friends and make useful connections with other kids.

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A STEM SUMMER CAMP

STEM Champ’s summer camps are designed to teach science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to students of all ages in a fun and engaging way. The students learn basic STEM skills while making new friends and improving social skills.

  • Rewarding summer – Many kids spend their summer at home watching TV and sleeping all day. It can be fun for the first few days, but then such pastimes can turn out to be boring for them. Besides, during the summer the kids typically forget most of the basic mathematics and science that they have learned at school. STEM camps can be both a fun and useful activity for your children. They teach the young participants to solve problems, think logically, and be creative.
  • Getting an idea of future careers – More and more prestigious careers require advanced mathematical and scientific knowledge and skills. Being introduced to math and science at an early age will give the youngest students a distinct advantage. Hands-on experiences with STEM activities will enrich them with important knowledge and develop necessary skills. As a result, your child will start making the first steps towards building a brilliant career in the IT, science, engineering, and mathematics spheres. It’s important to think of these not only as STEM summer camps, but also career exploration exercises.
  • An opportunity to get out of their comfort zone – By spending a part of their summer or even most of the summer in unfamiliar surroundings, kids will become more autonomous in the early age. Besides, they will make new friends and learn to work in a team, as many STEM activities involve teamwork in a fun lab setting. 
  • Feeling of self-confidence – In STEM summer camps, your children will be constantly trying out something new and do things that they were previously afraid of doing. As a result, when they return to school after the camp, they will feel more confident regarding the STEM-related subjects.
  • Finding inspiration – The idea of STEM education is to make the kids realize how STEM disciplines can simplify the human lives. The children get inspired for the future and remain excited to learn new things and grow with their experiences

Mom, I engineered a Videogame this summer!

How many of you as a parent would want to hear that? I’m sure some would stop at Videogame and say ‘No’ and others would give more focus to the word Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (#STEM) and say ‘Yes’. So why really there needs to be a conflict between what kids love and what their parents want for them. Ever thought what if we merge them?

If you can’t beat them, join them. From a very long time, research tells us that the video games we play influence our behaviour. While such claims had no effect on a child’s addiction, we came up with something even better. Why can’t we use this fascinating topic of video games, which would help the kids rather than disrupt their development? STEM Champ is bringing a #summer camp #Bangalore that will allow the kids to work with video games technology and learn first-hand about what goes into the game!

Students would learn to think critically about video games, considering some of the important social, psychological, and ethical issues and controversies surrounding them. Then, students will look at how games are designed, engineered and will help students explore careers in programming, graphic arts and illustration, production, and writing. Throughout the project based learning, students will develop and explore their own skills and aptitudes by practicing programming, comparing hardware, and learning about the application of physics in game design. Students will consider the educational applications of games, by practicing and analysing games that require fiscal management, smart urban planning, diplomacy (whether among neighbours, or nations), military management, engineering, storytelling, and long-term and big-picture strategizing. Finally, students will design and present their own games, then exchange feedback with other students.

If playing a game makes your kid a pro, then understanding how to make one makes your child a prodigy! Won’t it be just great to design your own video games characters? Well you get a chance to remove all flaws from your Player 1 and be the Alpha of your own game. Just make sure to tell us all your cheat codes! See you at STEM summer camp!
