Summer STEM Camps – Have fun and adventure while build friendships and confidence on the UNI Campus

Have you been to a UNI STEM Camp this summer? If the answer is no, you haven’t missed your chance to participate in a UNI STEM Camp quite yet!  We still have openings in several July camps! Mastering Multiplayers and Minecraft Mavens – For Girls are all about taking the power and transitioning from a game player to a game builder.  Middle Schoolers who love math or want to love math but are not quite ready for algebra should check out our half days camp - Opening Doors to STEM, a camp that combines mathematics, fun and growth mindset. Across campus in our Electrical Engineering Technology lab, the renewable energy is GOod campers will explore wind, solar and other energy topics and design efficient machines using Legos.  New this year – Beyond Frozen: Science, Math, & Art of Fractals campers will discover how finding patterns in nature can lead to STEM discoveries. Also new this year, Intermediate Robotics is designed as an advanced version of our popular Introduction to Robotics Camp. Campers will use additional program languages, take on new challenges with their robots, and explore robots at work in the world. 
A limited under of cameperships are available to assist campers from groups under-represented in STEM fields attend these camps.
