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.

For more information, please contact our Reservations Department at 407.514.2112 or classes@osc.org.

2021 Virtual Camps Descriptions & Dates

Grades K–2

Do you have what it takes to be a mini builder? Grab your hard hat and explore your creative side as we engineer a flying machine, design and build a playground, and much more. If you can imagine it, you can build it!

Learn about the world of video making and discover the tech behind your favorite family-friendly video clips. Do you have what it takes to be a STAR? #ScienceStar!

Campers must have access to an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet in order to participate.

Strap in and prepare yourself for a journey to the Sun, Moon, and the amazing planets that call our solar system home. Train like an astronaut, engineer rockets and shuttles, and plan your mission before you touch down on the surface of Mars.

Have you ever wondered why a zebra has stripes? Or why an alligator has so many teeth? Get ready for a safari as we step into the role of junior biologists and explore the exciting world of animal adaptations!

Gravity, static electricity, wind, and sound. Although you can’t see them, these forces are all around us. Join us as we investigate the invisible – you may be shocked at what you discover!

Before you ever invent a robot to clean your room you’ll need to know the basics of programming. Learn about coding, the language of computers, to make animations and create music with algorithms. If you can think it, you can code it!

Put on your scuba gear and take a deep dive into Earth’s oceans. Ever wonder how blue whales get so big or why clownfish live around sea anemones? Get the answer to these and many more questions as we explore one of Earth’s greatest mysteries – the ocean!

Become a master of your universe and use science to recreate the powers of your favorite superheroes. Do you have the reflexes of a panther? Can you control the forces of electricity? Put your power to the test and learn that with great science, comes great fun!

Grades 3–4

Join us at the intersection of creativity and technology as we turn our camp into a Maker Space! Use your creativity in combination with technology, science, and engineering to produce things like an interactive game! If you can dream it, you can make it!”

Watch your imagination come to life on the big screen! Using stop-motion technology learn how to plan like a pro, create amazing props, and direct your next animated hit film!

To complete this camp, campers must have access to an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet to download a free stop motion animation app.

Are you mad for space science? We are! Join us as we explore the solar system and its place in our universe. Discover how the Sun provides energy for living things, learn how humans can live in space, and design robots that could function on other planets.

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.

Your letter has arrived! Journey to your favorite wizarding camp as we study fantastic beasts, play with the physics of flight, and code charms that will delight. Join us as we explore the science behind the magic!

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 while gaining a better understanding of how computer science has changed the world around us. Ready! Set! CODE!

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!

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!
