emPowerU STEAM Camps Continue with Precaution

Kids can spend part of their summer at Mosaic Life Care Foundation’s summer STEAM Camps, complete with safety precautions.

Mosaic Life Care Foundation hosts STEAM Camps at emPowerU in St. Joseph and Think Ahead Works® in King City, Missouri, July 13-31. The Foundation will follow appropriate guidelines with campers and staff including taking temperatures, wearing face masks, social distancing and providing hand sanitizing stations.

Devran Brower, director of program operations, said summer camps provide families a good outlet.

“We are excited to offer our STEAM Camps this year,” Brower said. “We surveyed past participants and community members and received good encouragement to move forward with appropriate guidelines.”

The summer camps are designed for students entering grades 3-8 to create and develop an interest in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. This year’s camp theme is aviation.

Eight exciting camps are offered, including a new camp where participants experience coding and flying drones. 2020 STEAM Camp offerings include: Advanced LEGO Powered Machines, Coding Drones, LEGO EV3 Robotics, LEGO Powered Machines, LEGO WeDo 2.0 Robotics, Science of Flight, TYNKER Coding and Virtual Reality Explorers.

All sessions feature hands-on activities led by trained facilitators. Participants will build machines, vehicles, tools, contraptions and robots. They will also learn how to program their robots to perform a variety of maneuvers.

Mosaic Life Care Foundation is also hosting Camp Invention this summer at emPowerU July 6-10. Camp Invention is a week-long summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation.
