STEAM Camps

2018 SUMMER STEAM CAMPS

Mark Arts summer camps emphasize creativity and innovation, linking art to concepts in science, technology, engineering and math. At each session, students will be grouped by age and will explore mixed media, drawing, painting, culinary and clay projects according to the week’s theme. Guest speakers from Wichita’s STEAM fields will present at each camp. At the end of the week, students will demonstrate and display their work to parents and visitors. Special guests will be visiting the afternoon camps. STEAM Camps are made possible with support by the Lattner Family Foundation.

Camp costs $120 ($108 for members). One nut-free snack will be provided daily.

STARRY NIGHT

July 23 – 27

What is it like living in space? Do you know which stars you’re seeing at night? We will imagine life in space, learn about the types of stars we see at night and why some twinkle. We will talk about the speed of light and create our own “astronaut food.”

Special Guest: Kansas Cosmosphere

BEAT THE HEAT

July 30 – August 3 

Things are heating up this week as we learn the chemical changes that happen with our ceramic artwork in the kiln, the science behind bread making, how volcanoes affect the earth and how animals cope with hot temperatures. Don’t worry – we will also make our own ice cream to cool off.

Special Guest: Wichita Fire Department

SENSATIONAL SENSES

August 6 – 10 

This camp is a journey for the senses. We will learn how to compare visual vibrations to invisible sound waves, complete a blind taste test and braille recipe challenge, study how artists depict three-dimensional textures and even make our own grilled “stinky” cheese sandwiches.
