This summer, elementary and middle school students can continue their Science, Engineering, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) by attending the Accord Institute’s camp to be held at Coral Academy of Science’s Sandy Ridge Campus for one week starting this Monday, June 8.
The session begins at 7:30 a.m. and concludes by 4 p.m., with aftercare available until 6 p.m.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in advanced math classes, science and engineering activities and team competitions. Open to all students in grades 3rd through 8th, the camp also includes digital storytelling, miniature robotics, rocketry, blood typing, dissection, edible soil profile, microscopy, relative and absolute dating, and engaging art projects such as ARThropods, color theory and perspective drawing.
In addition to learning STEAM concepts in a cooperative format, students can improve their collaboration and communication skills during fun indoor and outdoor activities.
“Our educational vision is too important to ignore. With our nation at risk of falling behind in STEAM fields, we all agree restoring a hands-on, real-world, and theme-based approach to education is crucial for children,” says Erdinc Acar, chief academic officer, Accord Institute. “We selected Coral Academy as the school is becoming widely known as one of the nation’s top STEM schools.”
The camp will end with an award ceremony at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, June 12 that is open to all parents and the general public.
To register students, please go to www.AccordEducation.org. The price will be $295 per student.
