Learning Goals

This online summer camp pursues these 4 main learning objectives:

  1. Campers will practice reading STEM supply lists and build new vocabulary as they complete hands-on interactive projects.

  2. Campers will “train their ears” and “loosen their tongue” in conversational English through active collaboration with the instructor and fellow campers.

  3. Campers will further their comprehension and expression in English while sharing their understanding of STEM concepts through ample opportunities for rehearsing their listening and speaking skills in an all-English learning environment. 

  4. Campers will gain experience in online collaboration through moderated group activities to solve daily STEM challenges.
