    RE:  STEAM Works Summer Program Offered at Carver Elementary 


    Carver Elementary invites students to register for the STEAM WORKS summer program.  The camp will be held from July 16th through July 26th.  During these two weeks campers will explore topics in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) Camp hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and the deadline for registration is June 1st. The camp is open to all students in the community who are rising first through fifth graders. 

    “The camp will offer different stations throughout the school, giving campers the chance to engage in hands-on activities including drones, water games, robotics, the deconstructing of a computer and much more,” said Carver Elementary School Principal Chris Rogers.  “Each day campers will have fun exploring new themes that correspond with each activity," he added. 

    The STEAM Works program at Carver will have similar activities that are taught in the school's magnet program.
