Our Summer Camp Group Attends YMCA STEM Fair

Posted on: August 6, 2018

This year, over 1,160 youth in the YMCA Summer Camp program enjoyed the annual STEM Fair at the Virginia Air and Space Center. Summer campers not only participated in a wide range of fun and educational activities but many of the campers designed projects to be judged by local community leaders! The campers submitting the projects worked together in groups, developing their project’s design, construction, and budget. It’s inspiring to see meaningful connections being built within the summer camp group!

 

Summer Camp is just one of the many groups that have formed within our YMCA. In fact, the STEM Fair was made possible by our amazing group of volunteers that annually support the YMCA’s initiatives and community outreach. The Y offers numerous programs and activities that appeal to different interests. Like our summer campers, all members of our community can find a group at the Y. Together, groups can reach their goals and make meaningful connections that last a lifetime!

 

Special guests judges: Canon, Langley Federal Credit Union, NASA, Old Point National Bank, The Y., Frontier Technologies, Inc., Warhill High School, Norfolk Naval Shipyard, York County School System, 1st Advantage Credit Union, Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc., and PropBusta Drone Club.

 

Activity stations: Canon Virginia, ECPI, Langley Federal Credit Union, Menchville High School Triple Helix, Jefferson Labs, Newport News Shipbuilding Career Pathways and Jamie Auberg Instructional Innovations.
