Texas A&M AgriLife Extension is proud to announce a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) summer camp. The summer camp will be able incorporate STEM activities and highlight our youth programs. Amber Carroll 4-H agent, works with youth leadership projects though curriculum enrichment programs in schools and 4-H projects in the county. “I want kids to have funs by learning about science” is Carroll’s number one goal for the camp.
A sample activity is “Rockets to the Rescue!” which explores the field of aerospace engineering. Youth will be tasked with the same mission: in light of recent natural disasters such as the earthquake in Nepal, the summer camp kids will be tasked to design and build an aerodynamic food transportation device that can deliver a payload of nutritious food to disaster victims. Youth will learn engineering concepts, develop math skills, learn about nutrition and help solve a relevant, global issue.
