Description

Join us for our very first Extreme *STEAM summer camp! From mud bricks and shadow artwork to bottle rockets, bubble engineering, and gelatin science – you’ll design, count, build, and create all week long!

*STEAM is an educational approach that incorporates the arts into the more-familiar STEM model, which includes science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
