UNI STEM Camps provide Iowa youth with exciting and fun opportunities to expand their science, technology, engineering and mathematics knowledge and skills while making new friends.Explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the understanding of magic. This camp is designed for 4th through 12th grade campers who have communication disorders, learning disabilities, or are considered at-risk/low literacy learners. Students will be assigned to teams of similar aged peers. Activities will include demonstrations of magic (discrepant events) that piques the campers’ curiosity. Demonstrations will be followed by counselors leading campers through steps to explain and demonstrate the magic and the STEM concepts to others. On-campus field trips such as visiting the botanical center and magic activities will utilize reading, writing, and theater to retain information learned. On Friday, campers will demonstrate their favorite activities and explain how they work to their families.
