MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - For 11 years, students in grades 5 though 8 have had the opportunity to participate in STEM camp during summer break, including a modified virtual camp last year during the height of the COVID pandemic.

This year students had the option of participating in the hands-on in-person STEM camp through a partnership between USD 383 Manhattan Ogden schools and Kansas State University’s College of Education.

For those students unable to attend the in-person, K-State offered an online, virtual STEAM academy camp for students to participate remotely.

Campers in both camps get to choose three sessions to participate in, one for each week of the camp, and sessions vary from science, technology, engineering, arts, and math related learning.

The STEM and STEAM camp sessions started June 7th and are held Monday through Thursday until June 27th, 2021.
