The Science and Mathematics Extravaganza for Kids (SMEKplus) summer camps, sponsored by the Regional Mathematics and Science Center, are designed to involve area students, grades 2-8, in engaging, age appropriate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics enrichment activities. SMEK has been offered here at SVSU for over 20 years. Past activities include building a trebuchet, designing cardboard boats that must race across the pool in Ryder Center, engineering bubble wands, studying organisms from our very own wetlands, LEGO robotics, constructing a mini golf course, and more!
Students participating in this year's 3-day camps will experience hands-on, project-based lessons taught by area certified teachers and assisted by SVSU undergraduates aspiring to become teachers, as well as enjoy lunch in Marketplace at Doan.
We missed seeing campers in 2020, but we hope to be back together in Summer 2021.
