A Day in the Life of a Renegade

    Each week of STEM camp will focus on a theme and each day our campers will explore this theme through a series of hands-on projects and guest speakers. There are also multiple recess times for active bodies, and opportunities for reflection.

    From the moment our club members arrive, they are surrounded by successful, smart, trailblazing role models who encourage them to pursue their love of science, exploration and building. We create a nurturing environment that focuses on building community.

9:00AM - 10:00AM Each day begins with a morning meeting and team building/social-emotional activities. It's an opportunity to build community by welcoming each other, discuss the daily projects and set goals. The first day, we get to know each other, set club rules, and become a team
