The Virtual ExCEL STEM Camp on a Desert Island is for students with vison loss grades fourth (4) to seventh (7) grade and include a live hour at 12:00 ET, July 25-29, Monday through Friday, and is free to all registrants. We will continue to record these sessions so all have the opportunity to learn. Also included are five at-home extension activities for the camp theme and with the camp supplies that will be sent to the student. Parents, please register your student for the camp that matches their needs. As parents, you know if they would be more appropriately placed with the age level identified. If you are unsure, we suggest reaching out to your teacher of students with visual impairments. And remember, each student must be registered separately and must meet the definition of blindness in your state.
Campers will survive on a desert island while learning about physical science and engineering. Whether they are figuring out how to build a waterproof container for a message to be sent in a bottle or how to construct an area to sleep that is dry, campers will gain cooperative learning skills, computational thinking, and develop scientific practices for planning and carrying out investigations.
Grants are providing students from the United States of America an APH product that will be used during camp so we need registrations completed early! For students to receive items in time for camp, they must have registered for this week by July 15, 2022. Those that register after that date are still welcome to attend; we would suggest working with your teacher of students with visual impairments to procure the product for use during camp as all items are available through Federal Quota.
To make sure we have the correct information for your student, you may be contacted via email to confirm information. We are excited to have your student join our Virtual ExCEL Great STEM Campout!
