WHO: Students from throughout West Virginia and other states, West Virginia University faculty, volunteers and others
WHAT: The Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design and WVU Extension Service will host two science, technology, engineering and math camps to showcase the need for and use of these skills in today’s dynamic world.
The camps provide hands-on learning opportunities to pique the curiosity of students grades 7-9 in the STEM fields, and show how these skills are integrated across various fields of study.
As part of the AgriSTEM camp, students will participate in activities focused on ATV safety, industrial landscape, soils, insects, fashion design and more.
Participants in the STEM camp will have opportunities to learn about black holes and gravitational waves; atoms and light; parasites; and how science and the arts are intertwined.
The two camps will bring students together for engaging STEM activities, including a “Game of Drones,” and STEM Festival hosted by Mylan STEM-CARE (Curious, Active, Resilient and Engaged).
WHERE: West Virginia University, Morgantown Campus
