Show More

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.  


Music Coders

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.


Math Whizzers

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.
