Pump Up the STEM
Pump Up the STEM is the umbrella name for all STEM programming at Envision Children (EC). Currently EC offers students three different opportunities to participate in a STEM program: After School STEM, Power Saturdays and Summer of STEM Camp. Pump Up the STEM is designed for middle school students (grades 5-6). It is not a remedial program, and instead is designed to enhance STEM activities in the classroom and to expose students to careers in STEM related fields.
After School STEM
After School STEM is non-remedial program offered to students as part of the Catch Every Child initiative. It is currently only available to students in the Winton Woods Intermediate School. After School STEM is offered once week per month from September - May. Classes run Monday-Thursday for 90 minutes including 30 minutes of instruction and 30 minutes of discussion. There is a limit of 30 students for each class. Examples of topics include Intro to Game Design, Dr. Frankenstein's Lab, Coding 101, Basic Robotics, Rockets: To the Moon and Beyond and Math Wars.
Power Saturdays is a half day of STEM programming in conjunction with Northern Kentucky University’s Institute for Talent Development and Gifted Studies. The program is offered three times during the academic year. Power Saturdays is designed to be fun and interactive with a desired outcome of increasing interest and performance in STEM subjects. 4th - 8th grade students.
Next Power Saturdays — January 25, 2020 — 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. — Northern Kentucky University

Summer of STEM Camp— Sponsored by the Greater Cincinnati STEM Collaborative, STEM Camp will be offered in June and July 2020. See below for the specific weeks of the camp. The goal of Rockin’ Robots is to tap into student creativity and empower students to learn new skills as they create their own basic robots, learn how they work, and gain the programming fundamentals to create their own program to create and control both virtual and real-world characters.
It is designed to be fun and interactive with a desired outcome of increasing interest and performance in STEM subjects. 5th — 8th grade students.
