STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering Art and Math) Camp
"Art and Science have so much in common - the process of trial and error, finding something new and innovative, and to experiment and succeed in a breakthrough." - Peter M. Brandt
Did you know you can learn about the capillary action while painting? Many scientists like to make models. Artists also often make models, we just call them sculptures. In this camp, we will explore the connections between art, science, math and engineering. Learning about one can help us gain a deeper understanding of the other.
Campers will conduct experiments & create art pieces at the same time.
The children will spend 30 - 45 minutes outside during the morning and afternoon on the shaded campus. Some children choose to work on their personal art projects during this time while others get plenty of exercise.
All camps focus on the process of making art rather than finished product. Research shows that providing children with open ended activities promotes creativity. Ultimately, at this camp we focus on developing creativity, collaboration, patience with the process of bringing a vision to life, and a love for learning. Your child will not come home with the same creations as the other children because we leave space for the children to synthesize information and play.
All of the summer camps met at Austin International School on Adelphi Lane in Austin, Texas. Campers may check in at the front office at 9am, and can be picked up in front of the school at 3 PM daily. Campers are expected to bring a lunch and 2 snacks each day. Please wear clothes that you can get messy in because we plan on having a blast!
