Makey Makey Olympics Camp

The CSIU is in search of 20 science-minded young ladies who are interested in participating in a Virtual STEAM Camp.

Students will be provided with a list of home supplies such as scissors, aluminum foil, etc. they will need to gather prior to camp. If your child is selected for the camp, she will also receive a Makey Makey kit along with supplies to complete the daily tasks.

Students will log in each morning at 9 a.m. and throughout the day to receive direct instruction, video conference with advisors and exciting females in STEM Careers, and to engage in conversations related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Students will spend time working off-line with their Makey Makey kits to invent and complete various challenges.

The week will culminate with a live showcase where each student will be asked to choose a piece of art (painting, sculpture, musical piece, etc.) to bring to life with their Makey Makey kits.

Families and community members will be invited to watch this showcase live as it unfolds from the homes of students!
