New Camp IMAG Activities for Spring and Summer Sessions
Fort Myers, Fla. (February 19, 2018) – The IMAG team is getting ready for a new spring and summer camp that has been completely updated with new and exciting themes! Camp IMAG is going to be filled with interactive SHTEAM (science, history, technology, engineering, art and math) activities that nurture intellectual curiosity, discovery and innovation. Spring break camp is March 19 – 23 and summer camp is June 4 – Aug. 9. Camp Curricula is designed for rising first – eighth graders.
Sara Turner, IMAG’s new education manager, took a close look at Camp IMAG and made some exciting changes with an eye toward integrating the SHTEAM disciplines. “My goal is for campers to have so much fun that they don’t even realize they’re learning. I want them to feel excited and to want to come back for more,” said Turner.
Participants will have a blast inventing, experimenting, exploring, and investigating as they are immersed in Camp IMAG’s innovative camp themes. Activities are varied, fun and informative including opportunities to:
- Design, build, program and maneuver different types of robots.
- Create and crack codes, and build spy equipment and gadgets.
- Design, build and test racing cars, speeding boats and zooming rockets.
- Explore chemistry, physics, biology, weather, astronomy, and more using individual and 2-liter soda bottles. Transform bottles into erupting Mentos geysers, swirling lava lamps and instant twirling clouds.
- Design and print 3D objects. Use a laser cutter and vinyl cutter to make things designed in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Make a solar powered phone charger, wearable electronics and even a DIY Game.
- Get up close and personal with IMAG’s animal residents and learn all about them and how to care for them.
These are just a few of the fun interactive experiences campers will have during spring and summer camp at IMAG
