2021 STEM EnRICH Virtual Summer Academy
Atlanta CARES will host its annual STEM EnRICH Summer Academy under the auspices of Morehouse College on June 7 - July 2, 2021, for middle school and high school students. The STEM instructors will facilitate live lessons virtually and provide guidance to students as they work through project based STEAM learning activities. The students will boost their tech proficiency by participating in interactive skill based content through video, chat, webcam and whiteboard applications both giving them a broad foundation in technology. and helping them prepare for success in their academic careers.
The following courses will be offered:
STEM All Stars
This class integrates the STEM disciplines, science, technology, engineering, and math in fun, creative ways using engaging online resources and simulations that bring lessons to life and help students make real-world learning connections. This class is designed to inspire future scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians. A STEM Kit will be provided to each student for the guided learning activities in this class which will be facilitated by a certified science teacher.
Students will learn to code with music by creating their own computational remixes along with the applications of computing principles. They will gain computer skills by coding to play rhythm and melodic patterns and manipulating them to create their own music. As a culminating activity, students will have an opportunity to participate in a music/coding celebrity remix competition.
Students will deepen their knowledge of key math concepts through project based learning and game based learning designed to improve problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. They will use their math skills to find solutions to complex math problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. These activities are designed to prevent summer learning losses in math.
Comic Book Makers
Students will tap into their creativity to develop the elements of a story including the plot, theme, setting, characters, conflict, and dialogue to create a storyboard for a comic book. They will learn how to story tell and sketch for comics by creating a hand drawn and digital comic book designed in the Marvel style of comic book creation. An Art Supply Kit will be provided to each student for the guided learning activities in this class which will be facilitated by professional artists at Amario's Art Academy.
