STEM Camp Partners
Our week-long STEM Programs take place during the day and are designed for middle school students, specifically those in grades 5 through 8. Each program is designed to engage students in hands on STEM experiences, which are guided by Academy scientists and staff. During the week, students have an opportunity to take a deep dive into STEM topics, take STEM-focused field trips, and connect with real scientists and engineers, all while making new friends!
Our STEM Programs are aligned to the New York City Public Education Department calendar and provide a safe, enriching option for working parents during school vacations.
The New York Academy of Sciences has a long history of delivering enriching educational experiences to students in New York City. Students work alongside our team of educators and other STEM professionals. A 1:5 staffing ratio allows instructors to give individual attention to each child.
