STEM Summer CAMP for Independence Elementary Students
To become a thriving Smart Rural City, the City of Independence is creating opportunities for young students to develop the critical skills needed to use and create the new technology that will enhance their success at all levels. The City of Independence, in partnership with United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley, Community Services Consortium (CSC), Independence Library, and OregonAsk is launching a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Summer Camp to help underserved students close the technological divide and help them achieve their goals and potential in science, technology, engineering and math.
What: Free Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Summer Camp
Who: Students enrolled in a Central School District who will be entering 3, 4 or 5th grades in September
When: Monday-Friday, July 31st – August 4th, 2pm to 4 pm
Location: Independence Library, 175 Monmouth St. Independence OR 97351
Students can register for the camp in person at the Independence Library, or by contacting Erubiel Valladares at 503.837.1166 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The focus of the STEM Summer Camp is to develop critical problem solving skills using the responsive approaches to learning in science, technology, engineering and math. STEM helps students succeed in school and prepares them for careers that are driving the global economy growth.
Shawn Irvine, Economic Development Director for the City of Independence says, “In the future, being able to utilize technology like 3D printing will not be just a job skill needed, but an assumed knowledge base. We are so pleased to be partnering with CSC to provide local youth with exposure and education in this type of technology.”
