Sign up for STEM Camp!

Time is running out to register for STEM Camp.  This exciting program for students in kindergarten through 8th grade will be held June 16-20.  Monday through Thursday we will be at Goochland Middle School.  Friday we will be taking a field trip to The Science Museum of Virginia!

Students in kindergarten, first or second grade have their choice of Mother Goose Club, Amazing Animals, or Sweet and Sassy.  Each of these programs offer students the opportunity to do, hands-on, children’s engineering.

Students in grades 3-5 take part in the Emerging Engineers program.  They will learn to apply science, technology, and math by making a solar car that they will run on the big track at the Science Museum of Virginia.  They will also launch rockets and eat s’mores made in a solar oven.

Finally, students in grades 6-8, our apprentice engineers, will build a propulsion and electrical system, develop a controller, investigate density and buoyancy while assembling and launching an underwater remotely controlled vehicle, or ROV.

If you have any questions or would like a form, contact Mrs. Spessard at jspessard@glnd.k12.va.us.
