Pakistan Science Club organizes STEM Summer Camp 2016
Pakistan Science Club as per her tradition organizes 12thSummer Camp as Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics Camp 2016. The STEM Summer Camp was a unique blend of Science and technology, engineering and mathematics by involving young souls in interactive and hands-on activities. Where learning, trill, fun and recreation made every day special.
The STEM Summer Camp 2016 was attended by students till K12. The students till K4 were camped as Little Scientists, The students till K7 were camped as Junior Scientists and the students till K12 were camped as Young Scientists.
The day started with fun and science magic activities; putting forward a challenging question and demonstrating it and exploring why it does so? The Campers explored the science and logic behind them and discuss their views on it. Later on, they were guided to do hands-on science activities regarding basic science as individuals, as teams to develop team working and leadership skills in them, and in the end they presented and explained their projects to the group mates helped to build their presentation skills as well.
The Little Scientists indulged in the fun-filled, hands-on activities for a month. The hands-on activities helped them to understand the concepts of basic sciences like shapes, friction and motion, sound and vibration, light and vision, and energy.
The junior scientist group, projects and competitions related to basic science and engineering fields such as mechanical, civil, electrical, and robotics are designed for the students. The fundamental concepts and principles along with their application in these fields were explained to students. The hands-on activities helped them to understand the concepts of robotics, wireless electricity, wind turbine, hydraulic lift, and water rocket, and D.C motor, holograph. The group projects include bridge building, solar car, bridge building and hovercraft.
The Young scientist group activities address the basic concept about different engineering fields such as mechanical, electrical, civil and computer science etc. and the application of their various concepts like aerodynamics, induction, and diffraction and interference phenomenon in these projects. Students worked by themselves and participated in different competitions in teams or groups for team development skills and the explanation of the projects helped them to enhance their confidence, presentation and communication capabilities.
