Y STEM Academy, Natick


As a result of our recent partnership with the Town of Natick and Natick Public Schools, we are excited to introduce the Y STEM Academy, our new summer camp with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). 

What: At the Y STEM Academy, children will participate in hands-on inquiry based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activ-ities with traditional camp activities woven in throughout the day. Each week, children will participate in small group STEM academic enrich-ment activities. They will use the scientific method to ask questions and explore the world around them.

Who: Youth entering Grades 1-5 who are excited to explore STEM.

Where: East School, 90 Oak Street, Natick 01760 When: One week sessions June 26-August 18. Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm. Drop off 8:30-9:00am Pick-up 4:00-4:30pm AM & PM Care 7:00-8:30am & 4:30-6:00pm

Why: STEM programming is active, collaborative, and meaningful, supports mastery, and expands horizons. By focusing on hands-on STEM curriculum, the Y STEM Academy will allow for in-depth exploration that is youth-driven and staff guided in a way that cannot be achieved in a traditional school setting. This program will allow children to make a connection between activities they enjoy and professions in the ever growing STEM field, all while building on 21st Century skills.
