AISD Summer STEAM Camp – Ignite the Mind Through STEAM

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue (communication skills), critical thinking, creativity, and collaborative learning.

STEAM education helps students from different perspectives to understand the link between different disciplines to improve their comprehensive use of knowledge to solve practical problems.

Aldine ISD is offering a free, four-day Summer STEAM Camp open to current second-, third-, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-, and seventh-grade students. Due to space, 300 is the maximum number of students accepted into the camp. Organizers will fill seats on a first to apply, first to serve basis.
