What to do with inquisitive kids with summer heat on the rise? The BLAZE STEM summer camp experience is truly one of a kind, as it helps kids with extremely specific interests discover more about their abilities.

BLAZE summer camps are not there to teach campers so much as to inspire. We want students to understand how to think rather than what to think, so they can become future problem-solvers with no limits as to the intellectual challenges they may overcome.

For the past three weeks, our BLAZE STEM campers have been hard at work and produced such imaginative final projects! Campers explored 3D modeling and printing, biology, robotics programming, coding, photography and writing with passion and innovation. They also enjoyed getting to know fellow STEM campers after the “Sorting Hat” has sorted them into their respective Hogwarts Houses.

Our 3D modeling classes focused on using the design thinking process to prototype and test their own 3D creations. In robotics, campers utilized Wonder Workshop Dash-n-dot robotics to solve puzzles and complete challenges. In photography classes, students learned basic photography principles and created their own photo stories. Some campers even created their own virtual reality in which they told stories using their own characters.
