Marshall College of Science and West Virginia Science Adventures program host STEAM summer camp for K-12th graders

The Marshall University College of Science has teamed up with the West Virginia Science Adventures program to host a nine-week STEAM summer camp for children in grades K-12.

The camp, which focuses on science, technology, engineering, art and math, begins Monday, June 6, with discounts available for those attending multiple sessions, according to Dr. Suzanne Strait, biological sciences professor at Marshall and an organizer of the camp.

“We are in our third year of offering STEAM summer camps and have camp sessions like the Science of Boom, Minecraft Marshall, the Science of Harry Potter with many more,” Strait said. “In addition to offering these unique learning opportunities for local youth, we will also provide ACT math preparation courses for students who want to improve their test scores.”

Camps are taught by university professors, graduate students and local professionals with small class sizes and personalized instruction. Rates for the camp vary depending on type and length of the session with costs beginning at $40. The camps will conclude Friday, August 5.

A 10 percent discount is available for children or grandchildren of Marshall University employees if noted on their registration forms.
