Shopping around for the best summer camps of the year? Iridescent is one of the leading summer camps for innovation and creation. It inspires children to invent and embrace their passion for engineering. It can even help those who have never explored the world of engineering to find their passion.
Iridescent’s Summer Camp is built for “natural explorers, builders and inventors,” which “channels children’s natural curiosity through carefully designed exploration that will encourage the development of lifelong skills such as persistence and courage.” The camp is offered in three areas, including LA, New York and the Bay Area.
The 2014 Bay Area Summer Camp is open to 3-8 year-olds. At camp, kids learn about engineering and robots as well as observation of nature, leading to lots of creativity and engineering skills along the way.
Don’t worry if your kids have yet to express interest in the science, technology and engineering world. Workers at the Bay Area Summer Camp believe that all children are natural builders and explorers. In the past, activities in camp have included nature walks, learning about birds, flying paper airplanes, learning about trees and leaves, building safe animal homes, lizards, robots and many more. Iridescent’s summer camp truly blends nature with the innovations of the modern world.
The day camp runs from July 7 until August 1, lasting all day from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Parents and care providers can enroll children for as short or as long as they’d like, but Iridescent recommends a minimum of two weeks and ideally at least four weeks in order for the children to fully benefit from all the learning that the Bay Area Summer Camp has to offer.
Iridescent is a non-profit that heads projects around the globe. These projects are aimed to help inspire and teach children about technology and science, as well as math and engineering. Their goal is to help kids of all ages find inspiration, hone in on newfound skills and achieve great things.
The programs that Iridescent runs are available to kids of all ages, ranging from preschool all the way to working with college engineering program. From summer engineering camp to technology challenges to books and apps, Iridescent has their hands in all parts of innovation and science. The summer camp is a great way for kids to get an introduction to science and technology while having a blast this summer!
Don’t miss the opportunity for your child to explore their creative and innovative sides! Sign up for the Bay Area Summer Camp today.
