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 a new Virtual STEM Camp to encourage students to engage and explore robotic electrical engineering at home this summer!  Learn more below! 

Please contact Michelle Mangum at michelle.mangum@gnostem.org with any questions.

Camp Instructor - Brian Young
GNO STEM Virtual Summer Camp instructor, Brian Young, is an engineer and certified teacher with more than 20 years experience.

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.
