6th & 7th grade campers will work in teams to develop innovative solutions to a real-world problem in a project-based learning context. Field work and collaborative programming make this STEM program tons of fun!

Camp Innov@tionTech Valley High School invites current 6th and 7th grade students to apply for a week-long summer camp that replicates its unique Project-Based Learning model. Over the course of the week, students will engage in innovative collaborative projects around a real-world problem faced by one of our business partners. Students will work in groups to create solutions and present them on the last day of camp.

The daily program is based out of Tech Valley High School and will include off-site fieldwork opportunities for students as they explore innovation in our region. The Technology Week focuses on emerging technologies in the area and the Biomedical Week explores topics related to health sciences. Transportation Week will explore new ideas in vehicles and infrastructure. Students learn hands-on skills relating to electronics and CAD while developing new ideas to approach issues in fields as varied as robotics, green energy, and infectious disease.
