As we continue to develop the STEM Summer Playbook, we'll be adding new Summer Academies (our version of a Summer Camp). Check-in often!

Summer Academies

We've shared many of our Summer Academies below with information about the target age for which the activities were originally designed, information on the age range for which our team believes the activities would need to be adapted, and a per camper cost estimate for supplies necessary to successfully launch your own version of each camp.

Click into each camp to learn more about it, including guidance for launching your own version, daily agendas, supplies lists, and Oklahoma Academic Standards addressed.

Created by the American Institute of Architects of Eastern Oklahoma, join us for an engaging program where students can practice their design skills. Each day is chock-full of hands-on activities to teach kids how to evaluate and synthesize information, how to collaborate, and how to use creative problem-solving techniques when confronted with real-world dilemmas.

STEM in a Bag

(Shorter Activities)

Don't need a whole week's worth of activities? Our STEM in a Bag curriculum offers a shorter projects to infuse any summer camp with a little STEMspiration! Each activity's materials are designed to cost less that $1 per student!

Click the STEM in a Bag logo to see activities sorted by themes along with target age range, materials needed and activity instructions.
