Distance Learning


R2AC STEMx is a five-day long camp designed for students from grades seven to nine.  

Our Activities

STEM Workshop Opportunities

The camp consists of rotational workshops between relevant science, technology, and mathematics to ultimately design an epidemic response to real-life diseases.

Hear from Industry Professionals

Participants get the opportunity to hear from industry professionals and apply their knowledge in a group-based setting with other high-achieving students.

Learn more about Health Issues

We offer an interdisciplinary approach to viewing and solving health issues, in hopes of building future world leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The Schedule & Focus Areas

Saturday April 3rd, 2021

12:30 PM to 4:00 PM

The week begins with some icebreakers, and introductions to viruses and case studies. Campers have the opportunity to work in groups with other like-minded individuals their age to create solutions to real world issues. 

Saturday April 10th, 2021

1:30 PM to 4:00 PM

The second day focuses on coding. The day begins with a quick diagnostic test on previous coding knowledge, then campers are introduced to Blockly and Python. They then apply their knowledge through building their own games. 

Saturday April 17th, 2021

1:30 PM to 4:00 PM

This day, campers dive into bioengineering. The day begins with a virtual visit to the Smithsonian to investigate bones, and continues with a workshop on biomechanics. Then, students will work on their own prosthetic and end the day with more group work on the case study.

Saturday April 24th, 2021

1:30 PM to 4:00 PM

This day focuses on math. Campers have the opportunity to delve into advanced math, like fractals and statistics and take real life information from the current pandemic and population to investigate real-life applications.

Sunday April 25th, 2021

1:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Campers finalize their case study presentations on this date in preparation for presenting their ideas. Parents are invited to see the presentation showcase. The week ends with a closing ceremony that includes award presentations.
