2015 STEM Scholars Camp

High school students from across the region came to SVSU in the summer of 2015 to investigate a variety of STEM topics. Summer camps included a Mathematics Camp, Robotics & Beyond Camp, and a Science exploration camp. Participants tested their critical thinking skills, enjoyed discussions around ethical considerations and societal implications of scientific advancements, and collaborated with other on problem-solving activities. 

Students participated from the following school districts: Bay City Public Schools, Clio Area Schools, Cranbrook School, Freeland Community School District, Lutheran Schools, Missouri Synod (Valley Lutheran High School), Midland Public Schools, Saginaw City School District, Saginaw Township Community Schools, and Swan Valley School District. 

SVSU High School Mathematics Camp

Participants in this camp advanced their knowledge in logic, algebra, calculus, calculus of complex functions, linear algebra and probability through collaborative group projects. Students explored problems from engineering, biology, finance, game theory, and cryptography and also used mathematical software such as Maple, Matlab and latex. Mathematical modelling was utilized in combination with abstract mathematical concepts to solve real-life problems.

SVSU Robotics & Beyond Camp

The evolution of sensor technology has a tremendous impact in innovative applications ranging from humanoids to renewable energy. The SVSU Robotics and Beyond camp focused on understanding modern robotics using hands-on experience through projects involving Arduino and Lego Mindstorms kit. Students engaged in problem solving, designing, and programming and presented their prototypes to the local community.

SVSU Summer Science Camp

The SVSU Summer Science Camp gave interested students an opportunity to engage in real, hands-on science experiences. Each day of the camp focused on big ideas in physics, chemistry, math and biology with a emphasis on how we know the things we know and how we use experimental procedures to better understand the universe. Participants looked at things as small as atoms and as big as planets in space and a lot in between.
