This summer will mark the 7th year of our national award-winning Summer STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & mathematics) Institute®, powered on by Engaging Creative Minds (ECM). Join us as we kick off the holiday season by raising funds to send Lowcountry students to camp this summer.
ECM’s Summer STEAM Institute® is a camp in partnership with the College of Charleston designed to prevent summer learning loss for rising K-8th graders. All of our summer campers participate in immersive, Arts Integrated STEAM programming with instruction from local artists, cultural organizations, STEM professionals and educators designing and producing projects, experiments and unique art. Themes change weekly and focus on 21st–century skills such as fostering imagination, collaboration, and creativity.
Not only do the students have the best time of their lives, they learn a lot too – that is the important part! Our summer curriculum is designed to prevent summer learning loss, keep students engaged and ready to face the next school year refreshed and excited to continue their educational journey!
