The Sky’s the Limit STEM Camp 2024

The Sky’s the Limit STEM Camp is returning for its third summer of excitement, and registration is now open. The camp’s goal is to broaden science opportunities for autistic youth by providing a summer camp that supports inquisitiveness in a non-threatening, non-traditional, and inclusive learning environment. We aim to provide nature-based, hands-on learning opportunities and encourage the pursuit of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) degrees and careers.

The Sky’s the Limit STEM Camp embraces neurodiversity and the associated unique thinking and learning of autistic youth through flexible teaching strategies. Attendees, accompanied by their caregivers, will participate in hands-on outdoor and indoor activities, such as science experiments, icebreaker activities, yoga, geocaching, driving a TerraRover, water quality observations, and much more.

The Sky’s the Limit STEM Camp will be held on Fridays during 1-4PM on June 21, June 28, July 12, July 19, and July 26, 2024 at the Welty Environmental Center (1201 Big Hill Court, Beloit, WI 53511) in Big Hill Park.

The camp is FREE and open to middle and high school aged (grades 6-12) autistic youth. The camp is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) GEOPAths Program.

All campers must be accompanied by an adult caregiver.

Registration is required, using this link.
