STEM on the Go! is a Columbus Public Schools trailer that will go to sites where students will have the opportunity to do different STEM activities. CPS elementary and middle school teachers have created lessons and curriculum to use in STEM on the Go!
2020 Summer Enrichment Programs
June 22-25, 2020
Grades 3rd & 4th: 8 A.M. - 11:30 A.M. (Students can take advantage of lunch at CMS when the camp is done)
Grades 5th & 6th: 12:30 P.M. - 4:00 P.M. (Students can take advantage of lunch at CMS prior to camp beginning)
Location - CMS
Music To My Ears - Students are introduced to acoustical engineering as they design and improve acoustic devices that amplify music from a speaker in several locations.
Sky's the Limit - Dive into aeronautical engineering by designing models of flying technologies that help NASA collect aerial photographs.
Hop To It - An invasive species of toad has invaded Australia! Students will engineer a humane trap to catch the toad.
Lift Off! - Help NASA explore faraway worlds by engineering prototype rockets and rovers to explore planets and moons in our solar system.
Light Up The Night Sky - Experiment with circuits and sculpting materials and design a light display that replicates the Northern Lights.
Bubble Bonanza - Explore how bubbles behave and investigate the properties of different materials to engineer the ultimate bubble wands!
Recycled Racers - Explore the properties of a race car to design the ultimate racers made entirely of recycled materials.
To The Rescue - Severe flooding has cut people off from important supplies. Engineer "aid drop packages" that can be dropped by aircraft, protect what's inside, and are easy to find once they reach the ground.
In Good Hands - Learn about space hazards and help engineer part of a spacesuit for a new NASA mission!
Testing the Waters - LIfe on earth requires access to clean water, and as populations grow, the demand for water increases. Become a water resource engineer to design creative ways to reuse water.
Food for Thought - Ever wonder how ice cream gets to be so creamy and delicious? Find out for yourself as you engineer a process for making ice cream.
World's Apart - How do scientists and engineers gather information from places in the solar system that are difficult to reach? Use the Engineering Design Process to design remote sensing devices that can help scientists learn about a newly discovered moon.
Grades - Incoming 7th - 9th Graders
June 22-25, 2020
8 A.M. - 2:30 P.M. (lunch provided at CMS)
Location - CMS
Students will utilize the engineering design process as they use their creativity and tinkering skills to create a stop motion claymation movie, a hydraulic robotic arm, an indestructible egg drop containment device, and complete a variety of duct tape design challenges.
July 13-15th 8:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.
Interested in robotics? Or want to take your robotic skills to the next level? This camp is for you! Students start building with VEX on day one and learn the mechanics to construct their robots. They will then program the robot to complete a challenge using a remote control.
