Grand Forks Public Schools to Host Second STEMKAMP

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Grand Forks Public Schools will be partnering with Goshen Education Consulting to provide military-connected students with a five-day STEM-focused summer camp from August 15-19.

STEMKAMP (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics for Kids of Active Military Personnel) offers participating students in 3rd-8th grades fun, hands-on, immersive activities designed to help them explore a wide range of STEM-related careers for 125 students.

“Last year, 83% of Grand Forks parents/guardians agreed that STEMKAMP made their child feel more confident learning STEM disciplines,” said Shannon McWhorter, STEMKAMP program director. “We love seeing the student’s excitement for STEM grow each day of camp. STEMKAMP is really igniting a passion for STEM for students!”

In 2020, Grand Forks Public Schools was selected as one of only 10 entities nationwide to participate in STEMKAMP. Grand Forks was invited to host STEMKAMP by Goshen Education Consulting, Inc., a STEM educational evaluation and research center. Goshen selected Grand Forks based on its connection with families employed at the Grand Forks Air Force Base.
