Fun and Friends

Have you ever built and programmed your own robot?  Strolled through prairie grasses taller than you are and created a puppet to represent your favorite flower or animal?  Designed your own fabric pattern or 3-D statue?  Tested your own DNA?  If the answer is no, then you must not have attended the UNI STEM Camps.  Each camp brings together a small number of campers with similar interests with camp directors and UNI students for 3-days to a week of fun, friendship, and skill building.  

UNI STEM Camps are fun & friends with a side of confidence!

UNI STEM camps offer local youth an opportunity to visit campus and participate in themed science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics activities with peers under the supervision of undergraduate camp counselors and experienced adult mentors.  Campers make friends while gaining new skills and building confidence in STEM areas.  The majority of past campers sign up for our camps in order to learn about a topic/skill of interest to them.  That is correct, they come to camp to LEARN!  And a majority of our campers also leave camp agreeing that the camp experience helped them feel more confident that they can do a STEM career.

Learn more about how UNI STEM Camps impact local youth in the 2018 Report.
