This year's Middle School STEM Camp Registration HAS NOW CLOSED.
Each year Atkins High School hosts a Middle School STEM Exploration Camp. This camp is for current 7th graders (rising 8th graders over the summer) only!
The total cost this year is $200 per student. Expect prices to increase next year because of budget cuts. Registration deadline was May 15th!
Typical Camp Activities
This camp will include engineering, game design, and biotechnology activities. While we cannot guarantee each activity for every year, many activities are duplicated from year to year. In the past we have taken field trips to Forsyth Tech, and the Joint Center for Nanoscience and NanoEngineering to see an overview of their programs. In addition, students have constructed water bottle rockets & gliders, learned how to use 3-D software for engineering and scientific visualization, designed 2-D video games, and performed a variety of laboratory activities including extracting DNA from cells and using chemical techniques to identify solution types.
The 2018 camp will run from Monday, July 9th to Thursday, July 19th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
WE WILL NOT HAVE CAMP ON FRIDAY, JULY 13TH due to the fact that all WSFCS buildings are closed on Fridays during the summer.
Future camps will likely have similar dates, typically starting on the Monday following the Fourth of July.
