Our programs support and foster imagination and creativity by providing youth with hands-on experiences and skill development using new and emerging technologies that enable limitless possibilities for design and invention. And we do this in a true traditional "Camp" environment.

Our vision at The STEAM Project is to prepare youth for a world that increasingly demands scientific and technological innovation, thoughtful design, and a focus on empathy.

Our mission at the STEAM Project is to foster empathy through a human-centred approach to design that we call "Design with Purpose." Designing with Purpose is empathy driven and places the understanding of the needs of others at the center of designing solutions. Our programs encourage thinking about how new designs and invention will benefit and improve the lives of others.

The STEAM Project was founded by three Science teachers with a passion for working with youth and for fostering creativity and innovative thinking by making new and emerging technologies more accessible. After realizing some of the limitations of teaching in a structured school setting, we felt compelled to develop programs that supplement school learning in a meaningful way and that offer a deeper exploration and interaction with topics in science and technology. We chose a design approach to learning because it allows us to incorporate the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics in an enjoyable and natural way to learn.

2020 STEAM Project Summer Camp Weekly Themes

Session 1 - June 29 – July 10, 2020
Powering Outer Space
Campers will develop skills that allow them to design and build electronics as they learn about and plan for life beyond our own planet.

Session 2 - July 13 – 24, 2020
Designing for the World and Beyond

Natural Wonders
In this session, our projects teach campers how scientists plan and carry out experiments and learn from them. While campers are learning about physics, chemistry, and biology, they will also be using their hands and minds while making all kinds of projects and mini-experiments using the camp’s new tools and our technology.

Session 4 - August 10-21, 2020
Maker Faire
This session is purely creative. Whether it is their first time at our camp or they have spent all summer with us, campers will have the opportunity to use camp tools to design and build their own toys, games, and artistic designs.
