The “STEAM” (SCC) Camp for Kids is coordinated, and facilitated by the DuPage County NAACP Education Committee and North Central’s COLLEGE CONNECTIONS. The full- day (8:30 am to 5 pm), week-long camp will provide fun and enriching experiences in "STEAM" (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and the liberal arts for students entering 4th, 5th, or 6th grade for the 2020-2021 school year.  Held at North Central College, the SCC Camp will enable students to learn about the road map to college and experience the richness of the liberal arts through a simulated schedule of classes including science labs, art, music, literature, writing, dance and drama, world languages and wellness games and activities.

The innovative camp, with a “Science of the Arts” theme this year, is an inclusive, multi-faceted problem-solving initiative designed to increase the exposure of students to coding, chess, art, music, robotics, science, math, STEAM-careers and the college experience. The classes, taught by educators, teacher candidates and STEAM professionals, provide students with engaged instruction and immersion in a college campus. The week culminates on Friday afternoon, July 24, with a “Learning ShowCase for Parents!”

Join us for a fun-filled week that begins each morning with chess instruction, taught by one of the community’s top chess coaches, and coding, provided by highly acclaimed and innovative experts. The day continues with rich college-like experiences in the liberal arts tradition including foreign language, literature, composition, the sciences (i.e. the science of art and kitchen, forensic and roller coaster science along with “math” puzzling), and recreation, as well as important conversations about college.
