2023 STEM Camp Applications are Open
STEM Camp Flyer | Mentoring Flyer
Aloha Honolulu Post Members! The SAME STEM camp season is now open for applications! Please help us in encouraging our future leaders in STEM to apply. The Honolulu post will cover the cost of transportation and 50% of the camp fee for one individual to each camp. If there are more than one candidate applying for camps, we will hold a selection board to determine which person to sponsor. Go to the STEM Camp webpage for more information and to apply. Application deadline is March 15, 2023. This is an amazing opportunity for our young, high school students interested in a STEM career to experience a week at one of these camps.
SAME has been supporting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) events for over 30 years, and conducting camps for more than 20 years. Our camps, in partnership with the military services, are world-class and feature a very impressive record of producing thousands of engineers and STEM leaders. They provide a rigorous experience for students interested in exploring STEM skills and careers. Campers gain a sense of what it takes to become a STEM professional and what options exist to explore that interest from high school to college and beyond.
Each camp offers a mix of hands-on, challenge-based activities that help campers learn fundamentals of engineering and construction. Each camp also offers tours and field trips to area businesses and institutions that highlight their respective technical areas. Individual curriculum activities may vary year to year, but all use a competitive environment to promote growth in leadership, team-building, and problem-solving. The competitive nature helps build camaraderie among the campers and mentors.
