Applications are now open for the popular Summer STEM Program at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland! At least one Maker Mom reader sent her son recently and he had a blast at the camp. It’s reassuring to know this site is living up to its mission to help parents raise STEM-loving kids!
The US Naval Academy Summer STEM camps are offered for rising 8th-11th graders. The application includes not only basic questions about academic background, but about physical ability (as in, tell us about what varsity sports you’re in) as well. These are selective programs which aim to bring together a diverse group of participants from across the US.
Topics like circuitry, drones, coding, and cybersecurity will be covered in ways that allow for hands-on participation.
Parents must cover the cost of transportation to BWI or the Naval Academy in addition to the $505 approximate cost for the program, which covers meals, housing, and materials.
