stem-camp-website_orig.jpgOrange County Department of Education is proud to offer our fourth annual STEM Summer Camp for all TK-12th grade teachers, coaches, TOSAs, administrators, preservice teachers, and out of school time providers!  Come join us July 31, August 1 and August 2 at Heritage School in Tustin. We have something for everyone!  

During this 3-day series, campers will engage in hands-on learning and exploration on a Deep Dive STEM topic of their choice.  Deep Dives will include a variety of STEM topics and grade levels. Campers will also have a variety of one-hour breakout sessions each day to select from.

Campers will have an opportunity to hear opening Keynotes each day from experts in STEM career fields and share best practices in STEM teaching and learning with fellow PK-12 educators.
