STEAM Camp 1: Air, Water, Ground. Campers explore how humans build machines to help them fly like birds and float like whales. They will design and engineer their own creations in the AFS CreatorLab and test them out in the natural world.

STEAM CAMP 2: Machines. Campers will discover and investigate machines in our world and take them apart to see what’s inside. Then they’ll build their own great machine out of reused, repurposed, everyday items.
