Notre Dame’s STEM summer camp is designed to help children entering grades K-8 expand their budding interests in science, technology, engineering and math.

Waters of the World: July 18-22, 2022

Waters of the World is an exciting and fascinating topic for students of all ages. The many resources and business partners focused on water conservation and preservation available to us in Maryland make this topic very relevant and accessible! Campers will experience five full days of STEM activities focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Each day will tie into the overall theme of Waters of the World.

Each day, campers will be introduced to a new STEM concept and will participate in hands-on learning with instructors from the NDMU STEM Leadership program. But it’s not all science—there is also time for swimming, team building, crafts and lunch!
