STEM Summer Playbook is Live!

The Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance (TRSA) is excited to announce that all of the TRSA Summer Camp curriculum are now freely available on the new STEM Summer Playbook! Six of TRSA’s 9 camps and 16 STEM in a Bag activities are available now, and the Playbook will continue to be updated throughout the summer and into the 2021-22 school year.

Every child should have the opportunity every summer, and throughout each school year, to experience a STEM Spark. This summer could be the summer your students experience the spark that puts them on the track to pursue a STEM career!

Sparking and sustaining interest in STEM careers requires strengthening a student’s identity, academic capability, and access to engaging coursework taught by ambitious educators. With summer school and summer camps around the corner, school leaders, camp directors, and caregivers have a powerful opportunity to create that experience! TRSA wants to help.

The Playbook Is for Everyone

No matter who you are, the resources on the STEM Summer Camp are made for you to help bring STEM to students across Oklahoma! 

Families… if you’re looking for activities for your children, all of the activities from the camps and STEM in a Bag come with directions and the supplies are very cheap to purchase, if not already in your home. Go straight to the activities page here.

Teachers… if you are looking for activities to include in Summer School or Summer Camps, each camp includes 5 half-days of activities, all coming with a facilitator guide, supplies lists, and recommendations for ordering the supplies. Each camp has a target grade range, usually from 3rd to 12th grade. Some camps are easily adaptable for younger students, too! Go straight to the activities page here.

School Leaders and Camp Leaders… in addition to all the activities and guidance for facilitators, we’ve also produced a guide to the 5 steps you’ll want to take to make your camps a success. Go straight to the Facilitator Playbook here.
