Looking for a Camp with a STEM theme?
If you are looking for an educational camp for your kiddo this summer, you may like to consider a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) or Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) camp.
Here is our Guide to the best STEM & STEAM Camps in and near Plano, Frisco, Dallas, McKinney, Allen and surrounding areas.
These options are for elementary school students up to high school students to build and apply their science, math, technology, and engineering skills in informal, creative environments this summer. These camps help students up through high school grow valuable 21st-century skills while having fun.
Your child can grow engineering expertise and observational skills, enhance critical thinking and creativity while coding apps and computer games. They can develop increased coordination while learning to pilot drones, or maybe they’ll invent the Next Big Thing.
