Atoka Public Schools hosted four sessions of STEM camp during the month of July.
STEM, standing for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, is a program that aims to teach children through hands on learning to make connections with real world applications.
Four groups of incoming Fifth and Sixth grade students were treated to mini STEM Camps which focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
Each session of the camp spent two days working with circuits, building pixel boxes, completing daily engineering challenges, making model parachutes, and coding robots. They even discovered they could make circuits using Playdoh.
The groups had a great time exploring various STEM fields. Generous parents provided lunches, snacks, and drinks each day for the students.
Students participating in Session one were: Giovanni Becerra, Rebecca Brady, Ke’Don Mason, Isaac Matthews, Triegan Ridgway, Jaxson Slade, Jackson Speer, and Axton Tapley.
Session two included: Katori Gilbert, Garry Gilbert, Robert McCoy, Lucas Johnson, Addy Smith, Logan Greenman, and Iyanna Hopson.
Session three participants included: Cyrah and Ry’iah Hughes, Creed and Chieton Camp, Bennett and Bliss Henson, Kat Holloway, Maddie Kiser, Brett Walker, and Grady Howard.
Session four will include: Kade Moody, Ruby Miller, Shimmer Gerard, Chaini Hunt, Kimber Cathey, Jaggyr Holstine, Axel Smithart, and Jerni Williams.
Camps were conducted by Atoka Public Schools STEM director David Swift and Atoka Elementary School STEM coordinator Geraldine Southern.
