Course Description

Embark on engaging challenges in mathematics, science, and computer science.

Math challenges will be individualized based on the current level of achievement and will include fun applications and incentives.

The science program will focus on “neighborhood ecology.” The underpinning life and physical science will be incorporated as students make measurements on samples collected using simple and safe materials. Data collected from students will be shared and discussed. For example:

  • What is the pH of my soil?
  • What plants benefit from that pH?
  • Is there a storm coming?
  • What is the atmospheric pressure?
  • What is in that standing water?

Our computer science curriculum will incorporate instruction in Python programming and applications to “Big Data,” appropriately sized data for middle school students.

Finally, multiple robotics challenges will be offered. As campers progress through the activities, challenges, and competitions, they will earn Temple tokens, which can be used to purchase items from the TU-STEMstore.
