We are optimistic that GNO STEM's Hands-ON STEM Summer Camp sessions will be offered as scheduled. Any necessary changes will be communicated directly to parents of registered students, and updates will be shared here and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Questions should be directed to michelle.mangum@gnostem.org.  Thank you!


GNO STEM's Hands-On STEM Summer Camps explore robotics, coding, engineering, computer science, and more! Participating students develop critical skills in reasoning, analytical thinking, problem-solving, leadership, and team building. Our camps also provide opportunities for students to meeting local STEM professionals who help them understand how to match their interests in math or science with a variety of promising and lucrative STEM careers.

Hands-On STEM Camps are held Monday - Friday from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.  Each camp session is $350/week. Camp fees are paid at the time of registration.

Before Care is available from 8 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. ($75/week) and After Care ($75/week; snacks will be served) from 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m.  Before and After Care cost: $125/week.
