“Earth, Water, Air, Fire” – Young Scientist at work at the Newport Beach Sea Base
Following in the footsteps of famous scientist, German School campus’ STEM Summer Camp is exploring the elements – Earth, Water, Air, Fire.
Newport Beach (April 20, 2017) – Finding a meaningful camp that enriches our children as much as it provides fun, is hard work. German School campus offers the Orange County community just that with its STEM summer camp right at the beautiful Sea Base in Newport Beach, from July 3-8, 2017. Children ages 6-17 get immersed into hands-on scientific experiments while playfully being introduced to a new culture and language (German) as they have fun with water activities and make new friends.
Games and art activities are just some of the ways how the children will explore the different elements Earth, Water, Air and Fire. From exciting excursions on a pontoon boat to a local sea bass hatchery in the Newport Bay to building a solar powered hydro car, campers will learn about the various environments, and become familiar with sustainability, recycling, clean air solutions, wind power and much more.
All along, while experimenting and learning, German language terms and vocabulary will subtly be introduced at the beginner level while more advanced groups will try to incorporate German as a “working” language throughout their camp explorations. (Find a complete schedule of events here.)
As a trained Assistant Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America, German School campus founder and principal Ursula Schoeneich brings a wealth of experience to the table. She participated at many Boy Scout camps with her 16-year old son, an Eagle Scout, and she experienced first hand what captivates the minds of young camp-goers and keeps them engaged.
“When I designed this summer science camp I also drew a lot of inspiration from my 25 years of working as an Executive in the sustainable recycling industry.” Ms. Schoeneich adds. “But most importantly I want to engage and captivate the minds of my young campers with topics and projects that they can relate to. Their having fun is as important to me as their learning experience.”
