S.T.E.M. or S.T.E.A.M.? Try S.T.E.L.L.A.R.™!
Summer Camp is a time for fun along with learning. At Academie, we will have blocks of time dedicated to learning concepts to ensure that students combat the “brain drain” that occurs during the summer months; however, we also want kids to be able to let loose and feel like it is summer. What does that look like?
S.T.E.L.L.A.R.™ – Our curriculum provides students with the balance between traditional academia and cutting-edge learning which caters to their passions, with classes developed by professional scientists, engineers, artists and designers. We include Language Arts, Math, Public Speaking, Science, Engineering, Art (digital and studio) in our daily and weekly lessons. Blocks of time will be allocated for activities on a weekly rotational basis. For example, during STELLAR projects, students will rotate between Scientixium lab, Artixeda Minor studio, Texniol Enginuitix lab and other extra-curriculars.
We’ll explore these constellations:
- Scientixium: Hands-on learning about Earth science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics
- Texniol Borealis: Technology — 3D printing, Chrome Lab, Digital Art
- Enginuitix: Instruction in 3D modeling, Coding and Robotics
- Lexicorion: Engagement in Creative Writing, Debate Skills, and Public Speaking
- Logixeon: Practice with Logic and Reasoning
- Artixeda Major: Instruction and hands-on learning in Studio and Fine Art — Art theory, history, styles and media
- Rationixia Minor: Accelerated Math Practice

All Summer Camp students (Kindergarten through 5th Grade) will participate in our daily S.T.E.L.L.A.R.™ curriculum, including:
Kids will learn fundamental concepts and principles of computer science, while gaining hands on experience in coding their own video games and other programs. Beginning with block-based coding systems using graphic symbols (Scratch Jr.) in Kindergarten, students will learn more complex coding concepts in the middle grades using Scratch, then transition in 4th and 5th grade to beginning to program in Python, learning a programming language with many real-world applications.
Students will learn and practice creative art in a variety of digital media, including pixel art, photo manipulation, vector art, typography, photography, animation and videography.
