Engineering a Successful Start to the School Year

Spaghetti-marshmallow towers and robotics claws. That’s what new and returning students in the School of Innovative Technology at Singley Academy had the opportunity to build at the inaugural STEM Camp, held July 30-Aug. 2 at Singley Academy.

The camp was an orientation of sorts, designed to provide incoming freshmen with a hands-on STEM experience and allow returning students the opportunity to mentor. A total of 36 students participated – 24 new and 12 returning students. As a completely student-run camp, returning students designed the challenges, demonstrated the proper way to organize an engineering notebook, the purpose of gear ratios, supervised the robot build and served as judges for the final competition.
