2018 STEM Scholars Camps

Forty-five high school students from throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region participated in the Health and Human Services Camp and the Coding and Networking Bootcamp in 2018. Participants thought these programs were fun and engaging and they loved connecting with other students who had similar interests. 

Students participated from the following school districts: Bay City Public Schools, Bullock Creek School District, Carrollton Public Schools, Chesaning Union Schools, Essexville-Hampton Public Schools, Frankenmuth School District, Freeland Community School District, Lutheran Schools, Missouri Synod (Bethlehem Lutheran School, Valley Lutheran High School) Midland Public Schools, Reese Public Schools, Saginaw City School District, Saginaw Township Community Schools, Standish-Sterling Community Schools, and Swan Valley School District.

Coding & Networking Bootcamp

This camp focused on coding with Java and creating computer networks. Participants worked with flow charts to understand the basics of Java programming (data types, loops, conditionals, and functions), utilize them to design prototype/solution for a given problem, debug using tracing techniques, and write simple Java programs. In addition, students also set up small Local Area Network (LAN), used ping and traceroute tools to test the systems in a network, and the Wireshark tool to explore data transfer and data headers.

Health & Human Services STEM Camp

The Health and Human Services STEM Camp introduced students to a variety of health professions and health topics, issues, opportunities and applications. The primary objective was to promote health, wellness, nutrition and public health awareness while providing hands-on activities within these fields of study and practice. Participants gained insight into community health and nutrition programs, assisted SVSU athletes in sports nutrition activities, and engaged in activities/simulations in the areas of occupational therapy, physical therapy, human performance testing, medical laboratory sciences, water quality, nursing, and neuroscience research.
