2013 STEAM Creator Camp
8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
Aug. 12-16, 2013
California University of Pennsylvania
Cal U teams up with ANSYS Inc., a leader in engineering software development, to offer students in grades 6-8 a FREE summer camp focusing on STEAM — science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
At the STEAM Creator Camp, hands-on activities encourage interest in STEAM and introduce students to potential careers. Activities focus on:
- App development using Gamesalad software.
- Aquatic robotics using SeaPerch technology.
- Building design using Minecraft gaming software.
Comic book design, printing and manufacturing. “Our camp adds an arts element to the usual STEM subjects,” explains organizer Dr. Stephen Whitehead, interim associate provost at Cal U. “Another important component is that local industries will be sending professionals to participate throughout the week. We want the students to meet real people who use STEAM skills in their careers, and we hope the professionals will go back to their companies and talk about the students’ experience.”
