i2 Camp: a Summer Day-Camp to Invent and Inspire #makereducation

campstem

i2 Camp holds week long STEM-themed camps for middle schoolers in locations across the country during the summer months! Check out there schedules and courses, which range from engineering design to DNA barcoding!

The program at i2 Camp has been developed with the goal of engaging middle school children in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Partnering with some of the world’s leading STEM organizations, the camp broadens a child’s exposure to STEM with a wide variety of new, innovative courses not seen in traditional middle school education. The fun and intimate, hands-on activities of the courses strive to excite and inspire campers about STEM, creating enthusiasm that will hopefully spill over to their schoolwork and school choices in future years.
