The Ohio Valley Museum of Discovery will be offering Summer camp boxes with a STEAM (STEM+Arts focus) for 2020. The boxes will come with several topical family-friendly activities prepared by museum staff in collaboration with regional STEAM professionals. The target age group for these boxes is younger elementary students (gr. 1-4)

Summer Camp boxes will also include one hour-long Zoom session with museum educators (“camp leaders”) and a special guest (scientist, music composer, researcher, etc.).

Due to generous support from The Athens Foundation and the Ohio Center for Equity in Mathematics and Science, we are able to provide Summer Camp STEAM boxes on a “pay what you can” model.

When you register, you will need to add an amount per box, but if you are unable to pay, you can choose “pay at event” and you will not be charged.

The boxes cost between $20-$40 for our museum educators to prepare and supply. Any additional funds will go directly to supporting quality STEAM education through the Ohio Valley Museum of Discovery!
