STEM Summer Camp at Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, CT

STEM Summer Camp at Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, CTOur girls are so excited about their upcoming week of STEM Summer Camp at Discovery Museum.  For those who have been following my parenting journey, you know that we are a STEM family at heart so when it came time to choose a STEM Summer camp for our girls, Discovery Museum was our ultimate choice.

Each summer, Discovery Museum welcomes kids from Kindergarten to Grade 9 for interactive STEM learning adventures that explore a wide array of topics.  From bugs to robots and everything in between, Discovery summer programs feature trending themes and fun challenges each week with full and half-day programs offered through August 11.  Extended Day participants enjoy additional activities & outdoor time, weather permitting.

My oldest two will be Adventurers (for children entering Grades 2 through 4) and Voyagers (for children Grades 4 through 6).  They both chose the Robotics theme because my oldest is a future engineer while my middle is interested in medicine. Hubby and I do our best to encourage who they want to become.

STEM Summer Camp at Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, CTThis is the first STEM Summer Camp they attend because Hubby and I understand the need to expand their STEM horizons.  We are intentional in investing in STEM programs and activities that challenge them and make STEM relevant to every day life.

The STEM Summer Camp at Discovery Museum is perfect to fuel your child’s innate curiosity and creativity, even your tween at home.  There is something for every age and still time to sign up.  Here is a brief summary of what’s in store for the next few weeks.
