Unique STEM Camps for Summer, Winter Break, Spring Break and School Days Off
Idea Lab provides camps ranging from Cooking School, Robotics, 3D Art, Engineering, and Science. At Idea Lab Rock your Grey Matter Summer Missions, campers learn through inquisitive hands-on activities utilizing Science, Math, Critical thinking Skills and a great deal of IMAGINATION!
Each class, camp, and activity are carefully constructed to provide the ultimate Design-Based-Learning environment while providing a FUN hands-on experience. From figuring out mechanics of spaceship engineering using recycled materials to creating scrumptious desserts in our Culinary Arts series, our Idea Labbers are provided the necessary tools to QUESTION, LEARN and INVENT “Out-of-the-Box” solutions through, Arts, Sciences, Technology, Creativity and Natural Play.
Anytime school is out, Idea Lab Camps are in session. Our diverse curriculum offers camps from coding to cooking and everything in between. Look for camps all over town during:
School Day Off
Holiday / Winter
It’s about exploring the world together and supporting children’s thinking rather than just giving them ready-made answers. Teaching method we use are
TPR© (Total Physical Response) Method
Reggio Emilia Method
Project Based Learning
Idea Lab provides classes, camps and activities ranging from Augmented Reality, Robotics, 3D Art, Coding, Engineering, Language Immersion and much more. During our summer camp children learn through inquisitive hands-on-activities utilizing science, math, critical-thinking skills and a great deal of imagination!
Our curriculum is built primarily using seven learning styles Spatial, Auditory, Linguistic, Kinesthetic, Logical, Social and Solitary
Idea Lab Kids Offer 50+ Camp Options to select from S-T-E-M, Arts, Cooking and Language.
Why Idea Lab STEM Education Camp Is Important For Everyone ?
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics—STEM, and therefore, STEM education—are vital to our future and for the future of our children. STEM – Art- Language and elements of Cooking is everywhere; it shapes our everyday thought processing.
STEM plays vital role in our life. Cell phone, GPS Maps, drones and augmentative Reality all were unheard things in 90’s. But today, school kids from 5 years to 14 years are learning to build an app and become entrepreneur too. In our engineering/ STEAM summer camps, your child will turn into a real engineer: designing, evaluating and redesigning machines and super structures. Try a LEGO robotics building challenge summer camps to get the STEM juices flowing and come up with your figure and program it
According to the American Camp Association, STEM related activities have been among the most popular additions to summer camp programs over the past five years and for good reason. At Idea Lab classrooms are replaced with working tables designed exclusively for individual programs and class size is vastly reduced allowing idealabers to be able to experience a more intricate, hands on approach to exploring STEM areas through related camp activities.
First Idea Lab Kids, summer/winter/school day off camp provides an informal, laid back setting. There is no homework. There is no syllabus. Kids ‘participate to the level of your comfort’ environment. Most campers once they sign up for STEM related programs, find a new interest or passion and return several times. The ‘project based learning’ approach also allows campers to choose how to focus their interests and generate curiosity. Our teachers are there to encourage and create fun activities among campers in channeling their efforts
Second, the whole point of summer camps is for campers to understand how STEM helps us in everyday life and have fun in doing experiments. Kids can build and program a variety of robots (robotics) using EV3 LEGO® bricks and software or choose to cook international dish they always wanted to eat. It goes without saying that camp activities are designed to emphasize team building/working together, and learn about subject areas in which students are traditionally less than enthusiastic or never exposed during the school year.
Third, its not just drones, lego robotics, raspberry pi or circuitry but there is a healthy mixture of indoor/outdoor activities and breaks during summer camps. We play board games in aftercare and discuss in team about what we learned in camp.
Idea Lab STEM camp are intended to inspire future scientists, technologists, engineers, or mathematicians, chefs, artists by encouraging campers to explore these subjects in ways and to a level that they might not get to do during the school year. Some Idea labbers carry a new found interest in these subject areas home and take on a new enthusiasm at school by joining afterschool classes on STEM.
