New Extra Teen Track at Enchanted Hills: Wild Science with WizKidz

Attention parents of young campers. This summer at Enchanted Hills we’re collaborating with WizKidz Science and Technology Centers, offering an exciting tactile TouchSTEM breakout session to our Youth campers. The session includes cool activities such as building your own robot, unearthing fossils and best of all, taking the controls of an airplane during a one-on-one supervised flight.

We are so thrilled to be able to offer one of the most outstanding accessible STEM programs being offered in the USA at this time. Award-winning WhizKidz will offer a camp within a camp during our Youth Session this summer. This TouchSTEM program will run from July 15 to 18 and will provide students ages 11 to 15 with an unforgettable, hands-on learning experience in Science and Technology.

As one of the pioneers of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) initiatives for disabled youth, WizKidz Science and Technology Centers developed the S.T.E.A.D.Y Academy initiative to spark and enhance students’ with disabilities interest in science and technology education, two areas that fall short for servicing students with disabilities. In 2014, WizKidz were selected as a 2014 Google RISE Awardee and were nominated for the 2014 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring.

Parents and guardians who wish to register their children for the TouchSTEM program can do so on a supplemental section which is included with the Youth Session application.

When: July 15 through 18
Where: Enchanted Hills Camp for the Blind
