Students learn STEAM skills at Oak Summer Robot Camp

Students learn STEAM skills at Oak Summer Robot Camp

Students in the Oak Summer Robot Camp have worked hard to develop their Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) skills this summer using hands-on robotics and coding activities. The incoming third through fifth graders have learned valuable lessons that they’ll use in the future during the four-week camp that took place at Oak View Elementary School. 

The students were broken up into four classrooms, led by Megan Somercik, a third grade teacher, Stacy Grant, a fourth grade teacher, Nicole Hayford, a fifth grade teacher and Robert Ryden, an English Learners (EL) teacher. This program also had a big social-emotional learning role, with students working with Melody Hahn-Merges, a social worker. 

“Over the past four weeks, students have developed their coding skills, programming skills and problem solving skills and learned how to work creatively together,” said Jamie Terry, a fourth grade teacher and the coordinator of the Oak Summer Robot Camp. 

The Oak Summer Robot Camp is a part of the summer programs provided by Community Education each summer. For more information on the summer programs, check out the Community Education website
