STEAM Camp is an exciting and hands-on learning opportunity for young people with a special emphasis on the STEAM curriculum areas (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). As educators, we must provide educational opportunities that endeavor to integrate the arts, sciences, and technology for this to happen. LWGMS already embraces this educational model, and is currently in the process of developing curriculum for our students that is cutting edge, and that integrates the arts into the STEM model: STEAM. STEAM design classes incorporate problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, presentation, prototyping, and response to critique (resilience). Here at LWGMS, in summer camps and the school classroom, we are celebrating the STEM to STEAM initiative!
JULY 8 – 12
Explore the wonderful world of insects! Together, we will delve into the world of insects through 3 dimensional art projects, scavenger hunts through our neighborhood, educational games and hands on dissections of a grasshopper. Whether your girls are afraid of creepy crawlies or fascinated by arthropods, they will love this week of STEAM focused fun!

AUGUST 12 – 16
Design Thinking Camp uses academic and artistic concepts side by side, to create a stimulating, project based curriculum! Spend a week learning about concepts such as symmetry, balance, and form that are found naturally in both art and math. Use different art materials and mediums to reinforce these concepts with building and sculpture! At LWGMS we use “design thinking” strategies, such as prototyping, data analysis, and creative problem solving to create artistic and engineering masterpieces!
