Green, the summer STEM camp coordinator, said she’s super excited about a new biology session where campers “actually go to the forensics facility, where they will look at a webcam and observe two different species of vultures.” She added there will be a chemistry of food session, one for quantum computing, STEM teaching and problem-solving in math. Engineering Technology will also exhibit their experimental vehicles and vision equipment.
