Register today for Fort Hays State University’s science and math summer camps for kids

Summer is just around the corner, and Fort Hays State University’s Science and Mathematics Education Institute (SMEI) is gearing up for its annual summer camps for students entering grades four through eight. With a limit of two camps per student and spaces filling up quickly, SMEI is offering a variety of camps that are both educational and fun.

One of this year’s camps is the Main Street Math Camp for students in grades four through six. This camp will take place from June 3-6 in the afternoon, where students will work in teams on hands-on activities to design, build, and operate their own store on Main Street. Another camp, A Sense of Place: Designing for Folklore and Fairytale, is available for students in grades five through eight from June 10-13. During this camp, students will create their own short story through illustration, image scanning, and 3D modeling.

For those with an interest in engineering, there are camps like Camp North Star for students in grades five through seven. This camp runs from June 17-20 in the morning and focuses on activities such as CAD design, rocket designs, and robotics. For students who want to learn more about robotics specifically, there are camps like Robot O Rama and Robo Challenge where they can learn to build, program, and test LEGO robots or custom build robots for real-world situations.

The registration fee for each camp is $70 with a deadline of May 3rd on a first-come first-serve basis with a maximum of two camps per student. Interested participants can contact Cari Rohleder at 785.628.4743 or via email at [email protected] Registration brochures and more information can be found at
