CLEVELAND, Tenn. –Cleveland State Community College is hosting a variety of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Camps this summer including Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Lego®  Robotic Camps, Musical Theater and Forensic Science. Camps will be offered at both the main campus, as well as the off campus sites in Athens and Vonore.  

“Cleveland State has been providing STEAM Camp opportunities for over the past five years and has served around 500 kids since the beginning, and we hope to continue to grow over the years,” stated Keri Eyeler, Continuing Education Coordinator. “We are excited to announce the addition of two new camps this summer, Rocket Building and Balsa Bridge Building.”

There will also be a STEAM Camp t-shirt design contest component this year. Participants are invited to create a design to go on the front of the 2018 CSCC STEAM Camp t-shirt. Designs should be no larger than 12”x12” and if possible, submitted as JPG, PDF, GIF or TIFF files. Designs are for the front of the shirt only and must include the year, Cleveland State Community College and incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Designs are due to keyeler@clevelandstatecc.edu by March 1, 2018, and the winner will be announced on March 16, 2018. The winner will receive their design on the 2018 STEAM Camp shirt and a week of free CSCC STEAM Camp of their choice. All participants that enter a design will receive 10 percent off camp registration if they register by April 15.
 
According to Eyeler, anyone can donate to the CSCC STEAM Camp Foundation, and this money is used to fund children whose parents or legal guardians cannot afford to send them to camp. For more information, contact Eyeler at (423) 473-2270 or to make a donation, go to http://www.clevelandstatecc.edu/giving/give-today.html  
           
The complete list of STEAM Camps is as follows:

CLEVELAND CAMPS (located on the main campus)

  • Forensic Science Camp
    This camp will be held on July 9-13 for children ages 11-16. This camp will include hands-on experiences in the discovery of a crime, crime scene investigation and evidence analysis. Topics will include evidence college, forensic anthropology (bones), fingerprint analysis, blood (synthetic) typing analysis, DNA analysis and ballistics. Participants will begin the week documenting and collecting evidence from a crime scene and setting up the CSI laboratory. Introductory lectures are followed by intensive laboratory experiences that promote hands-on activities as participants work to unravel the crime. The camp concludes with a trip to the Bradley County Crime Laboratory to witness how crime science investigators and law enforcement work together to solve crimes. These camps are scheduled from 8:30 a.m. – noon, and the cost for these camps is $115 and includes a t-shirt, lunch and snacks.
               
                ● Lego®  Robotics, Beginner’s, Intermediate and Advanced
    There are two Beginner’s Lego® Robotics camps on the main campus during the weeks of July 9-13 and July 16-20 for ages 8-10. These camps are scheduled from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and the cost is $225 each. This includes a t-shirt and lunch. This camp features Lego® Education NXT robot sets that students will build. At the end of the camp, participants will be able to identify robotic parts and components; understand assembly processes, sensors, and movement of basic robotics basic movement and sensor application programs; understand advanced programming concepts and commands; apply and utilize creative applications for robotics and identify industrial robotic applications.

    There is an Intermediate Lego® Robotics camp on the main campus during the week of July 16-20 for ages 11-14. This camp is scheduled from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., and the cost is $225. This includes a t-shirt and lunch.
