About Our Camp
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is about satisfying human curiosity. STEM is a growing global field. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statics, by 2020 there will be over 9.2 million jobs in this field. Many of our children are not being prepared for the job market of the future. When high school seniors graduate from high school only 45 percent are ready for college math and only 30 percent are ready for college science courses. The United State ranks 52nd of all industrialized nation with our students preparation for math and science fields.
Our mission is to introduce science to children during elementary and middle school to a real world problem solving setting that correlates to STEM objectives. Students are able to learn in an interactive setting, making science and math applicable to their world. Whether our kids are building a solar oven, taking a mission to Mars or building a solar robot, KEMET provides kids a fun and engaging environment.
