Do you know kids who love science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics? Check out the STEAM Summer Camps offered in Hillsboro and Wilmington through a partnership between Southern State Community College and the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center.

Each of the programs is designed to bring campers’ ideas to life in a fun, hands-on learning environment. From concept to creation, students will demonstrate their masterpieces at the end of each week. All STEAM Summer Camp programs mirror the collaborative nature of the design process.

The curriculum is provided through Black Rocket and Sciensational Workshops for Kids, Inc. Each session includes a $149 fee and will be hosted on either the SSCC Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro, or SSCC North Campus, 1270 Davids Drive, Wilmington.

To learn more or to register, contact Kim Fitzpatrick at 800-628-7722, ext. 4684, or kfitzpatrick@sscc.edu. The recommended deadline for registration is June 29. For more information, visit www.sscc.edu/students/events/steam-summer-camp.shtml.
