The health and safety of our camp students, volunteers, instructors, and staff is our first priority. In light of the on going restrictions related to COVID-19 and the closure of UNO facilities, we will not be able to offer GNO STEM's Hands-ON STEM Summer Camp sessions as hoped.
However, as we adapt and change course during this unusual time, GNO STEM is excited to introduce new "Virtual" STEM Camps to encourage students to engage in science, technology, engineering and math from the comfort and safety of home! Learn more below!
Please contact Michelle Mangum at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
NEW VIRTUAL STEM CAMP!
Out of This World -- NASA Astro Camp®
10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Instructor is available 30-minutes prior to/following camp for one-on-one time if needed.
For Students in Grades 5- 8
Join GNO STEM'S NEW Virtual NASA ASTRO CAMP®! Your mission is to explore the exciting world of space travel through Astrophysics, Earth Science, Heliophysics, and Planetary Science. Learn about gravitational waves and the engineering design process. Search for signs of life on the "Road to Mars," explore the Life Cycle of Stars, design your own mission patch, and MORE!

"Robotic Electrical Engineering Camp" (FULL!)
July 13 - 17
10 a.m. until 12 p.m.
Instructor is available 30-minutes prior to/following camp for one-on-one time if needed
For students in grades 3 - 11
Students will be grouped together by age and subject matter expertise
Access to a computer/iPad with a camera and internet to participate in Zoom calls.
Participating students will receive a kit of materials including a camp guide and directions for daily activities, and all electronic components needed for the camp and lab experiments!
GNO STEM's Virtual Summer STEM Camp sessions will immerse students in a week of exciting hands-on activities as they bring gadgets to life with electrical engineering and lab experiments. Campers will discover how engineering and programming work together to make new and exciting inventions and build technology skills while collaborating with others camp students online, all from the safety of home. Students will complete camp with an understanding of the electrical engineering process and have the tools they need to continue to practice what they've learned at home.
Participating students receive 2 hours of daily live instruction plus hands-on circuit building followed by self-paced circuit practice and challenges.
Some of the topics and activities include: voltage, current, resistance, schematic symbols, series and parallel circuits, batteries, switch types, motors, buzzers, photocells, diodes, RGB LED, capacitors, SCR, and integrated circuits.
