STEM Camps

Choose from any of our cutting-edge Summer and Holiday Camps
Ages 5+
Camps for future scientists,  engineers and technologists!

At STEM World, we engage your future scientist, engineer or technologist through unique, cutting-edge programs, all in our world-class "STEM immersion" facility!  We know how to "get your science on."

We not only offer two levels of technology camps in Robotics, Programming, Coding, and Engineering, but in our themed-science camps, we offer project-based, multi-disciplinary programs in Astronomy, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Paleontology, Archaeology and more. 

We're serious about inspiring confidence in science and technology, but don't get us wrong - we're just as serious about having fun!  Some of our camps offer field trips; all include healthy lunches and snacks; and none are boring!  If you're unsure of what any particular camp includes, or simply want to know more about us or our approach, we're just an email or phone call away!
