Summer STEAM Camp

Engaging Creative Minds (ECM)

Summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Camp

Engaging Creative Minds provides creative learning opportunities that encourage imagination and innovation to help students achieve academically, stay engaged in school and succeed in life.

Arts, etc. will provide scholarships for Angel Oak Elementary School students to participate in the 6-week summer STEAM camp.  The Summer STEAM Institute is designed to reinforce the STEM concepts taught during the school year.  By adding the “A” for the arts, STEM becomes STEAM and creates more opportunities for students to be exposed to local arts organizations and arts experiences.  Students participate in weekly  themes such as Robotics, Forensics and Chemistry and have opportunities to engage in Dance, Theatre, Music, Visual Arts, and Athletics. 

The Camp is designed to address summer learning loss and provide opportunities for students to participate in meaningful experiences that keep them engaged and on track for the next school year.

ECM won the 2016 New York Life Excellence in Summer Learning Award from the National Summer Learning Association and has presented its camp model to more than 60 program providers from all over the country.
