Summer Notes Week 3

STEMtastic! The Hajjar STEM Center was abuzz this week thanks to stellar STEM classes for both campers and teachers. Immersive campers in STEM Challenge built and then ‘battled’ with their ‘bot creations and worked together hands-on with STEM Institute educators in a collaborative makerspace. These motivated teachers also learned all about programming, 3D printing, and more, earning professional development credits along the way.

3D Origami, Archery, Ballet, Fencing, and Woodworking were just a few of the exciting courses that D-E 360° Summer Connections Enrichment campers enjoyed this week. There are still some openings in many of these unique ‘a la carte’ courses for the next few weeks – click here for details and to register today!

Meanwhile, our Scholars hit the half-way point in their credit-earning classes!
