Students and parents looking for a fun, engaging educational opportunities for the summer months might want to consider this year’s National STEAM Summer Camp. Hosted by IBM from July 19 to 23, this online science and technology-focused summer camp is open to all students entering grades 7 to 12 and is free of charge.
Created by the IBM STEM for Girls Program (but open to all students regardless of gender) in collaboration with industry partners ATCO, Telus, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks and Security, and others, the National STEAM Summer Camp provides students with an opportunity to participate in a wide range of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities with the goal of building confidence and expanding knowledge.
Each day of the camp will include several hours’ worth of interactive activities such as digital art, building chatbots, creative technical writing, cyber security, and making ice cream, facilitated by personnel from IBM and partners. All participating students will be able to choose from a variety of sessions and can attend whichever ones capture their interest. Each activity comes with a recommended age group and, where applicable, necessary supplies.
