STEM Virtual Camps

This summer we are offering STEM Virtual Camps in addition to our onsite summer camps. Campers will engage in  activities that help them bring science to life at home! 

These camps will offer virtual sessions with a live instructor and other campers each day. Campers will be given STEM tasks and challenges to complete with the instructor and other campers, as well as, independent activities. Activities will use materials typically found in a home and caregivers will receive a materials list before camp begins.

The STEM virtual camps will conclude each day together in a traditional camp style with reflection and preparation for the next day. We are dedicated to providing your camper with a fun and educational experience from the comfort of your home.

If registration for your class has closed, please contact our Reservations Department to discuss enrollment at 407.514.2112 or classes@osc.org.

2020 STEM Virtual Camps Descriptions & Dates

Grades 3–4

Explore the ins and outs of coding; from the basic bits of binary code to the algorithms that help us solve challenges and aid us in designing our own coded creations. Using a variety of coding programs, we’ll establish and strengthen our coding skills all while gaining a better understanding for how computer science has changed the world around us. Ready! Set! CODE!

Coding Cadets Peek at the Week

Look beyond the surface and dive to new depths as you learn all about sea life. What is life like underwater? How do marine animals work together to make homes? Why are sea urchins spiky? From the coral reefs to the deepest depths, come explore the great ocean, and the secrets it holds!

Sea Explorers Peek at the Week

Push yourself to soar higher, go further, and be faster as we plunge into the science behind your favorite superheroes! Harness the power of the elements and power up your creative strengths as we join forces, working as a team to overcome obstacles!

Superhero Science Peek at the Week

Ready, set, go! Get active and learn about the body systems that make it all possible. Move those feet and master your technique while exploring the heart, lungs, muscles, bones, and brain. Once your mind is trained and ready, we will take a look at careers that help to keep our bodies in tip-top shape. 

Anatomy All-Stars Peek at the Week

Have you ever wanted super strength like an ant or to fly like a bird? Dive into the world of discovery where scientists are taking their cue from nature to create technology like solar trees or planes to help us overcome everyday obstacles. 

Nature Inspired Peek at the Week

Grades 5–6

Take a journey into the unknown! Discover how astronomists collect data and learn new information about planets. Find out how far the planets truly are as you learn what it takes to blast off into space!

Final Frontier Peek at the Week

Wonder how stop motion animation and green screens work? Learn how to create videos like a professional and develop spectacular short films to impress your family and friends! To complete this camp, campers must have access to an Apple or Android smart phone or tablet to download a free stop motion animation app.

Movie Magic Peek at the Week

If you can think it, you can code it! As we learn about and explore the coding world, we’ll quickly find out that the possibilities are endless! Think about your favorite online game and imagine that you were the one who made it! Strengthen your coding skills in order to solve problems, create artistic animations, and even develop your own game. Let’s code!

Coding Academy Peek at the Week

You don’t always need an advanced degree to do scientific research! Citizen scientists are everyday people who gather data and contribute to the greater good of science. With the help of these volunteer citizens, scientists have discovered new species, deepened their understanding of the universe, tracked changes in the environment and so much more. In this camp, you’ll join the movement to help scientists understand and improve our world! 

Citizen Science Academy Peek at the Week

Embark on a journey through Florida’s natural beauty! Take a guided virtual tour in the Dry Tortugas that will make you feel like you’re diving next to the coral reefs! Investigate the nature around you and learn about the science of native and invasive species. Explore the diverse ecosystem of the Sunshine State and learn to engineer technology that can help save Florida wildlife!
