The South Orangetown Central School District kicked off the seventh annual Summer STEAM Camp at South Orangetown Middle School on Tuesday!
The two-week camp includes daily sessions featuring hands-on activities that are focused on science, technology, engineering, art and math. These lessons are led by SOCSD teachers and staff members, along with student volunteers from Tappan Zee High School. Students have the opportunity to dive deeper into STEAM topics that they would normally not get to during the school year in a small-group setting.
Over the course of two weeks, our K-8 campers get to rotate among stations which include robotics, Lego construction, build your own golf course, mindfulness exercises, dominoes, science-inspired arts and crafts, and strawberry DNA extraction.
STEAM Camp is coordinated by Instructional Science Coach Samantha Levine (K-8) and School Social Worker Jessenia Cursio with the SOCSD Office of Curriculum and Instruction. This year’s program began on June 28 and runs through July 8.
