Summer STEM Academy - St. Paul

In partnership with:  


Summer STEM Academy 2019 Themes & Dates: 

  • July 22-26: Genetics, DNA, and Dissection - What does a brain really look like? How does the circulatory system work? What determines eye color? We’ll spend the week dissecting and analyzing what makes each of us unique. We will study Gregor Mendel and his peas, Punnett squares/pedigrees and DNA all week long. Campers should feel comfortable with age appropriate dissections to attend this camp.
    Expedition Host: Johnson & Johnson 
  • July 29-August 2: How It's Made - Let’s get our hands dirty as we uncover how things are made! We’ll take apart and breakdown well-known and beloved items and gain appreciation for the processes and people who make them.
    Expedition Hosts: Trane and Ingersoll Rand      
  • August 5-9: All Aboard! Transportation: Past, Present and Future - No matter the destination, we’ll tinker with different transit vehicles to get you there by air, space, road, water, and more! We’ll learn how transportation systems work together to keep us moving and tinker with tried and true vehicles to create new platforms for efficient mobility.
    Expedition Hosts: Ingersoll Rand, Thermo King and Collins Aerospace with MN National Guard
