I know summer camp searching can be a full time job for some of the parents out there. I came across this and thought I would share in case you’re looking for something for your students to do this summer.
The application deadline is May 20, 2016 and they have sites in all 5 boroughs!
STEM Summer in the City 2016
In addition to weekly STEM challenges, involving coding & game design, developing engineering solutions and inventing with robotics, the program also includes enrichment opportunities in the Arts, Physical Education and includes trips to NYC cultural institutions. This summer we are looking to pilot a Minecraft track where all students will be able to build and share their creations in Microsoft’s new Minecraft portal for schools.
