To that end, the Flint Community Schools offered its first-ever STEAM Camp, a two-week, jam-packed summer experience that blended academics and the arts with fun-filled, hands-on activities designed to increase elementary-age student’s exposure to STEM subjects. By adding art (STEAM), the camp also provided a space for creative thinking and reflection, helping campers internalize what they learned each day. The camp was designed to coordinate with the district’s Brownell-Holmes STEM Academy, which opened in 2013 with support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. Learn more: http://bit.ly/FLNT-STEAM.
