STEAM_small_RGBThe learning and fun continue all year round at Lake Washington Girls Middle School!

LWGMS STEAM Summer Camps for girls ages 8–11

STEAM Summer Camp is an exciting and hands-on learning opportunity for girls, with a special emphasis on the STEAM curriculum areas (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). LWGMS embraces an educational model that integrates the arts into STEM: 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! LWGMS STEAM CAMPS

July 28-August 1
August 4-8

Lake Washington Girls Middle School summer camps are a great way for elementary girls to get an introduction to all things STEAM. Our summer curriculum fosters fluency in creative thinking skills and collaboration, which can then be used to solve 21st century problems. Problem-solving, risk-taking, and mistake-making are necessary skills to practice, especially at the middle school level and especially for girls. All of our STEAM summer programs emphasize the use of Design Thinking, which is the core of problem solving. The girls will work on a variety of projects, including stop-motion claymation filmmaking, model building, and Scratch coding. The girls can expect a dynamic experience working with hand tools, modeling clay, recycled materials, iPads, cameras, 3D printers, state of the art computer software, and more!

Open to rising 3rd through 6th grade students.
$395 per session.

Lake Washington Girls Middle School, located in Central Seattle, is a place where girls explore, experiment, discover, create, and learn about themselves and the world around them. Since 1998, LWGMS has challenged its students with high standards and helped every LWGMS girl find the tools she needs to succeed. Here, girls are empowered to think critically, develop leadership, and enjoy learning through an integrated curriculum that has proven to prepare girls for success in high school honors and college preparation courses. Our cooperative, experiential, holistic education supports girls throughout their middle school years - academically, socially, and emotionally. We have small classes, caring teachers who work with students as they move from sixth through eighth grade, and strong parent and community involvement.
