STEM Adventure Camps

Always an adventure with STEM

It was quite an adventurous week for several area youths exploring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities at Bloomsburg University from geocaching to encoding to an inflation of a cow lung. And that was just in one day.

BU’s Regional STEM Education Center recently hosted 80 campers entering fifth through 10th grade for its Great STEM Adventure Camps where they explored different aspects of the STEM spectrum through presentations, activities and demonstrations.

  • Explorers (5th to 6th grade) — had hands-on fun with rocks, geography and the environment. Campers learned how to use data loggers to examine chlorophyll and photosynthesis with plants in the field and lab.
  • Investigators (7th to 8th grade) — used science and math skills to investigate the world from DNA finger printing and brain waves to environmental biology. Campers brushed up on math skills through fun activities.
  • Innovators (9th to 10th grade) — discovered how to use computers to investigate crimes, create programming and decode encryption. Campers honed their math skills for high school and college as they worked to master the world of technology.

Husky Sports

Bloomsburg University's football team has garnered preseason attention, ranking highly in a pair of national polls as the Huskies slotted No. 4 in the Lindy's Sports NCAA Division II Top 25 and No. 13 by The Sporting News. Senior center Ryan Geiger also was tabbed as a Sporting News Preseason All-American. With the current rankings, Bloomsburg has now been ranked in at least one national Top 25 since the 2000 season. Bloomsburg opens the 2015 season at home by hosting non-conference Stonehill on Sept. 5 at Redman Stadium's Danny Hale Field.
