NOVA Systemic is a Northern Virginia Community College’s STEM outreach program. It is passionate about developing a pipeline of student-centered activities from elementary school to career, building the STEM workforce of the future in the process. It is excited to announce that it is hosting a series of Virtual STEM Camps available starting at $98 per camp for the entire household.
Our Virtual STEM Camps will provide opportunities for students to explore STEM and the engineering design process from home. The curriculum includes some hands-on projects coding with micro:bit and scratch, VEX robotics, fabrication and cybersecurity tools. Camps are offered for elementary (rising 3rd grade) to high school (rising seniors) students in daily 1-2 hour online sessions throughout the summer. With fewer contact hours the cost to participants will be reduced and we will host camps per household instead of per student making them more affordable for the entire family.
