What is STREAM?!
STREAM stands for: Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math
Kingsport City Schools is excited to offer a Summer STREAM Camp for rising 4th grade - 8th grade students the week of June 23-27, 2014. The camp is designed to spark interest in STREAM learning through hands-on, project-based learning in the areas of Chemistry, Digital Media, Engineering, Environmental Exploration, and Exploration of the Arts. Campers will work to search for solutions, discover new learning through exploration, design their own creation and learn about STEM careers. As a concluding project to demonstrate the application of student learning, students will develop a digital portfolio focused on key projects within the camp. Utilizing the 21st century skill of communication, campers will present their portfolio to an audience of peers and supporting stakeholders.
