GNO STEM's Hands-On STEM Camp Registration is Now Open!

GNO STEM’s Hands-On STEM Camps offer students the opportunity to expand their STEM skills and knowledge and discover career opportunities in a variety of exciting and lucrative STEM fields.

Students can expect a fun and busy week of “hands-on” STEM exploration and learning as they develop team building and other important career skills such as reasoning and analytical thinking. Camp activities will include a mix of guided and self-directed learning in a supervised, fun, and engaging environment. GNO STEM Camps are led by certified instructors and explore robotics, circuitry, coding, and more for all skill levels. 

Teachers are invited to participate in GNO STEM's Hands-On STEM Camps to learn and work side by side with students for hands-on training that they can bring back to the classroom.

GNO STEM's Hands-On Summer STEM Camps are $350/camper per week. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available.
