Georgia Tech-Savannah Gives Behind the Scenes Look at STEAM Camps on Mid-Morning Live

May 24, 2019


SAVANNAH, Ga. - Registration is now open for Georgia Tech-Savannah’s STEAM Summer Camps, which includes 2 new programs. Starting June 3, 2019, Georgia Tech-Savannah will host a number of summer camps on campus to enrich STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) learning for rising 3rd through 12th graders. Students ages 8 - 18 throughout Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty County Schools are encouraged to register.

As in years past, Georgia Tech-Savannah is continuing to offer the “Full STEAM Ahead” Program, themed “Journey Through the Stars”. This is a week-long program designed to enhance and encourage curiosity. Students will experience different student-centered activities. During each week, rising 3rd thru 8th graders will learn how to code using Hummingbird technology and learn about different constellations before creating their own.

This year, they are adding “Internet of Things” and “Make It, Move It” Summer programs for 11th-12th graders. The “Internet of Things” week-long camp is connecting the world around us in new and novel ways, so this camp will show your student how to create his/her very own IOT sensors and also give them the tools necessary to continue the fun all year long!

Then the “Make It, Move It” program for 7th-10th graders, which is all about robots, assembly lines, and raw materials that make it… and planes, trains, trucks and ships that move it! This week-long summer program will have your child exploring all the aspects of the supply chain through games, engaging projects, and sessions led by industry experts. We'll finish out the week by assembling your very own Ramblin’ Wreck model car!

“It’s all about creativity, curiosity, and exposure to all things STEAM. Our camps allow kids to get excited about science, math, art, engineering, supply chain, and new technologies at a young age,” said Diane Lee, executive director of Georgia Tech-Savannah. “With the addition of our new camps, we can help challenge students imagination even more, and allow them to continue to grow academically over the summer. What they learn about today’s technology may even surprise some parents.”
