Spring Break S.T.E.A.M. Camp 2023

Open to students currently in grades 1-6

S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) is an exciting, ever-evolving part of education and the world around us. But kids don’t always get the chance to play and explore in these areas in a meaningful way beyond school. At Tutor Doctor Hawaii’s spring break camp, students will have the chance to enrich their S.T.E.A.M. knowledge through fun, hands-on projects and activities. 

Campers will encounter open-ended challenges and interactive projects that engage core S.T.E.A.M. principles while centering student imagination, curiosity, and enjoyment. They’ll get creative with a diverse range of materials and tools, and develop tangible skills in art, writing, and S.T.E.M.  

From building robots and gadgets, to exploring print making and traditional dye techniques, to writing original stories and more, our goal is to inspire the next generation of innovators, problem solvers, and creative thinkers. 

Join our S.T.E.A.M. TEAM – where learning feels like play!

Can you survive 5 days lost in space?

The year is 2023. Tasked with a top secret intergalactic mission, you and your trusty team of scientists journey through the galaxy in your home away from home, the SpaceCruiser 3000. Suddenly, an asteroid knocks you off course and sends you hurtling down to the surface of a mysterious planet! When the dust clears, you realize the SpaceCruiser is damaged beyond repair. How will you survive? You and your team must band together and use your skills as scientists, artists and writers to navigate this new, alien world before all hope is lost in space…

In this action-packed week, students will transform into engineers as they learn how to build and code robots. They will become architects, designing a functional intergalactic community, and will use their writing skills to report on their experience of being lost in space for their very own intergalactic newspaper

Project Sneak Peek:

  • Build, wire and code various robots for your new planet
  • Work as a team to create your new home planet and community
  • Test, code and play with robots

This is a key step in keeping our center safe for everyone, and we kindly request for parents to assess their children before coming to camp.  If your child will be staying home and missing class for any reason, please report this to the office.
