summer camp 4 stem kids
Become a wizard of light, rainbows, and holograms!
This super fun STEM summer camp is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for local Pittsburgh kids to learn the basic concepts of Optics and become familiar with exciting light manipulation techniques.
Using curiously-shaped lenses, flashlights, laser LEDs, dark boxes, mirrors, pinholes, tubes, and special glasses, children design experiments that explore a wide array of light-related issues, from understanding what a photon is to the miracle of the rainbow effect. Of course, all of that is being done with a single purpose in mind: creating something as close as possible to a real hologram!
This "Advanced Technologies For Kids" summer camp is one of the best STEM programs that takes students on an exploratory journey into the world of light and optical wonders.
