As the American workforce continues to evolve, areas of study like science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) have been critical as we prepare students for the jobs of the future. A non profit summer camp sponsored by Great Expectations Educational Resources and Support (GEERS) Kidzxtreme Fun Camp is charged with instilling that desire in area youth.
For the past three years, the camp has focused on a fun-filled project based learning environment for youth in kindergarten through eighth grade. Over 120 campers explore new activities daily in literacy, art, science and robotics. The camp is housed at the SAL Tech Charter High school building on Walgreen road. The organization is committed to narrowing the achievement gap and developing the next generation of innovators. Shown is Christian Harrell constructing an robotic car.
