Robbinsdale Students Participate in STEM Camp
It may be summer, but a group of students in the Robbinsdale Area School District have spent the past couple weeks immersed in science, technology, engineering and math.
More than 250 students in grades K-5 just completed the district’s STEMtastic camp at Meadow Lake Elementary in New Hope.
The two-week camp is designed to teach kids about the different careers and experiments associated with STEM fields.
During the final day of camp, the school hosted a science fair where students could show off their hard work to their parents, and members of the community.
“During these past two weeks, they have really started to gain that excitement back for school and learning and the curiosity,” said Kendal Giacomini, a 4th grade teacher. “So I think it’s going to lead them to a place where they can feel like they can be in a STEM career, because I think a lot of times they’re thinking rocket science or all of these really, really hard careers. But they’ve been able to see many different types of careers over the past two weeks.”
