Initially launched in 2013, Ascendant STEM Camp is aimed at middle school students with proven aptitude and interest in STEM subjects. These students are provided with multiple activities and projects over the course of the camp to expand their capabilities.

This year, Ascendant STEM Camp opened on July 8, with a one-week session for beginners and one advanced two-week session. At the conclusion of the last session, the students presented their projects to their parents and other invited guests.

The students generated energy from wind and solar sources, explored electromagnetism, created websites, developed video games, constructed robots, and wrote their own codes to fly drones remotely. They also learned about block chain and cryptocurrency.

Among the software and hardware tools that the students used were C/C++, HTML, CSS, Dreamweaver, Solidity, Python, Scratch, Photoshop, 3D Paint, BASIC, EV3 Robots, Codrone and Airblock Drones.

Duval Robinson, a Computer Science senior school teacher, was the facilitator for this year’s camp. “I believe that technology is a very important tool in teaching and learning,” stated Mr. Robinson. “This triggers engagement, fostering creative minds and future innovators.”

    in order to become true innovators they will need to break away from current system of learning the world is using and look for Truth instead of remembering a formula. example you need to quest for how/why the formula was made. fully understand that and store that in your brain. That is how true innovators are produced.
