Augustana's STEM camp July 15-19 is for middle school students entering grades 7-9 in the fall.

Students enrolled in STEM Camp engage in hands-on activities designed to instill and enhance an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Topics range from human genetics to sustainability and food scarcity to coding.

The cost for this year's STEM Camp is $250 per student. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until we have reached capacity. Payment must be made online. Registration fee includes a T-shirt, reusable bag, lunch in the Ordal Dining Hall and a light snack each day, and all scientific materials. A second t-shirt can be purchased for an additional $5, but please select that option at the time of registration.

Space is limited, so do not delay. During the registration, be sure to include an active, frequently checked email address. Additional information and materials will be sent to this email address prior to camp.
