Virtual Summer Camp Framework:
Going virtual means that more students than ever before will get to experience these STEM learning camps. Here are our levels of participation:
- STEM Campers – TRSA is able to accept more students than ever into these camp experiences. When accepted, students can expect:
- To receive a STEM Camp Toolkit in the mail prior to the start of camp. This will include all the materials and resources needed to engage in a series of unplugged activities relating to that camp.
- Be able to enter into an online learning environment where students, facilitators, and STEM professional mentors can safely interact.
- Have access to a number of pre-recorded videos (interviews with STEM professionals, demonstrations, tours, etc.) and online resources (presentations, games, escape rooms, etc.)
How to Participate:
- Click here to apply!
- Once spots are filled, all other students are encouraged to complete the waitlist application in order to be considered for any open spots at the STEM Campers level.
- Summer Camps are offered at no cost to participants.
- Camps are listed by the grade the student will be entering in the Fall of 2021.
- STEM Campers will receive program information via mail and email.
Donations Accepted!Thanks to our vibrant funding community, TRSA is able to provide our STEM opportunities at no cost to participants. If you would like to join this team of individual, corporate and philanthropic donors to ensure that these opportunities are available to students and educators, please consider making a donation below. In 2019, the average cost of a week long camp for one student was $200. Together we are building broad, deep, and innovative STEM pathways for all students to access high-impact careers.
