By Steven Geller - Director of Media and Public Relations

Normandale Community College will host a STEM Camp for 5th-9th grade girls from July 30-August 3. The camp combines fun and games with speakers and field trips.

The focus of the camp will be electronics, electric engineering and software. Students work with Jill Johnson (Electrical Engineer and Normandale faculty), Debbie Shortreed (Practicing K-12 teacher), and the multiple pre-service teachers from the Normandale Education program, will use the Normandale Maker space to create projects. Students will learn about the design process using the 3D printer, the vinyl cutter and the laser engraver.  

The camp experiences give the participants an opportunity to engage in the engineering design process and discuss careers with those in the field.
