Summer STEM Enrichment Camps
June 24 – 27, 2019 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Project 3C will provide American Indian students with experiences and skills necessary to: accomplish goals successfully, increase similarities between their interests and career choices, and broaden their college and career opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
Engineering a Zoo Rising 6th – 8th Graders
What goes into building an exhibit at the Zoo? What needs to be considered in order to make the perfect home for an animal? In this camp, students will learn how Zoo engineers create animal exhibits. Each day students will be involved in hands-on STEM activities related to engineering topics. Students will think like an animal engineer as they design their own zoo exhibit. Students will travel to the NC Zoo to explore and discover the final answers. Students will be inspired to explore future careers such as: Construction Manager, Zoologist, Animal Scientist, Landscape Architect, Mechanical Engineer
Speed: STEM Rising 11th – 12th Graders
Come and explore how speed and acceleration, weight and balance, and traction and friction affect a race car. The Speed and STEM Camp will provide hands-on fun and enriching educational experiences. Students will relate motorsports to the core principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics by navigating through various hands-on stations. Students will travel to Charlotte Motor Speedway for their final day adventure. Students will be inspired to explore future careers such as: Physicist, Mechanical Engineer, Automotive Engineer.
To apply, and return applications, contact your local YDS or RCC Project 3C Camp Coordinator.

Start your coding journey with basic coding concepts that will allow you along with other campers the opportunity to code a robot! Campers will learn the core concepts of computer programming that will lay the foundations for future coding success through exposure to various technology tools. This camp will create a supportive learning environment that encourages creativity, exploration and hands-on problem solving. Students will travel to Charlotte Motor Speedway for their final day adventure. Students will be inspired to explore future careers such as: Video Game Designer, Computer Hardware Engineer, Fiber Optics Technician, Robotics Technician/
SCRUBS I Rising 11th – 12th Graders
This camp is designed to build interest in human anatomy and physiology. The camp will provide students with hands-on experience studying the major organ systems of the body, as well as discussion about diseases and injuries that affect those systems. The students will broaden their understanding of basic science and health sciences. During the camp experience, students will develop an interest in STEM and health related careers while they participate in activities such as: Introduction to the skeleton and human anatomy, working with microscopes, the cardiovascular system, the urinary system, the endocrine system (blood glucose testing) and real world applications of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Students will travel to Scotland County Hospital for their final day adventure. Students will be inspired to explore future careers, such as: Physician, Nurse, Dentist, X-Ray Technician.
