STEM Innovation Camps are designed to spark an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.  Hands-on problem-based learning excites students about STEM career paths that are fast-growing and available in the region and encourages them to explore and have fun too! Students and teachers participate in:

  • team building activities
  • instruction and experimentation
  • project design
  • guest speakers

 

2016 STEM Innovation Camps offered in Hays CISD are sponsored as part of Cognizant’s Making the Future program.

Host a STEM Innovation Camp!

By hosting low-cost summer camps at high -tech companies, STEM Innovation Camps remove barriers to participation in STEM activities for economically disadvantaged and at-risk students while actively addressing summer learning loss. By incorporating innovative, real-world design challenges and using industry-standard software tools, STEM Innovation Camps pave the way for collaboration with local STEM industry partners and focus student career trajectories on the high tech jobs available in the region.

Skillpoint Alliance works directly with teachers, principals and district administrators to design, implement and evaluate these programs.  This flexible model allows educators to build the program that best fits their needs.  Training and materials provided leave the teacher equipped with activities, supplies and experience after participating.
