Great News!  Insights is hosting multiple science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) summer camps at UTEP throughout the summer of 2018.  Our camps provide a fun engaging environment for your kids to dive into in hands-on activities designed to review state educational standards (TEKs) for each grade level.  They’re a great way to keep your kids engaged this summer and get ready for the start of the school year.  All Insights STEAM summer camps are designed and run by certified teachers with the help of UTEP students training to become Math and Science teachers.  Students will learn problem solving skills as they tackle challenges with real world connections.  We offer three great STEAM summer camps:


Zootopia STEAM Summer Camp

1 week, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Aug 6th – 10th

Ages 9-11 (4th and 5th graders)

Location: UTEP’s Centennial Museum and Desert Gardens

Jump into the world of animals and zoos through a variety of STEAM lessons and activities! Campers will craft a scale model replicating some of El Paso Zoo’s most popular animal attractions, play BINGO while identifying biomes from around the world, and adapt their own “bird beaks” to eat the most candy. Campers will also explore what makes up the world animals live in by identifying the non-living parts of our environment, role-playing photosynthesis, creating an edible rock cycle, and much more. $100 for the entire week, campers need to bring their own lunch.

 


 

Time Warp! STEAM Summer Camp

1 week, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

July 23rd – 27th

Ages 11-14 (6th, 7th, and 8th graders)

Location: UTEP’s Geological Science Building

Travel on a virtual time machine with STEAM activities that go back to the age of the dinosaurs and to the future of space travel! Going millions of years into the past, campers will learn how fossils were formed and make their own, measure life-size footprints and calculate whether or not they could outrun a dinosaur, and design a dinosaur starting with DNA from a mosquito trapped in “amber” Jell-O. Blasting into the future, campers will create and launch their very own rockets, travel through constellations by using the Pythagorean Theorem, freeze their own meteor ice cream, and much more. $100 for the entire week, campers need to bring their own lunch.

 


Superhero Math and Science STEAM Summer Camp

1 week, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

July 30 – Aug 3rd

Ages 11-14 (6th, 7th, and 8th graders)

Location: UTEP’s Aerospace Education Lab

Join a super-squad and fly into the world of superheroes, their stories and costumes, and your own super powers! Campers will try to outfly Superman (on scooters) and outrun the Flash, escape a super villain using lasers, mirrors, and the Law of Reflection, and play Frisbee with a new math hero called Super Slope. Campers will also experiment with human “super” powers of static electricity and our five senses, build their own web (radioactive spiders not included), and much more. Throughout the camp, kids will invent their own superhero, design their costume, and even calculate how much damage a superhero can cause when fighting a villain. $100 for the entire week, campers need to bring their own lunch.
