Shady Hill School STEAM Summer Program

A fun opportunity to boost creative problem-solving skills!

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics

This summer, we will be offering four weeklong sessions, providing young learners with experiences in robotics, coding, engineering design, and the arts. 
Each day, children will rotate through four activity sessions. Projects include:
  • Building and programming with LEGO
  • 3-D Printing with TinkerCAD
  • Coding with Osmo using iPads
  • Expressive arts and performances
  • Etching with the laser cutter
  • Tinkering with conductive thread & paint, electrical circuitry, and Chibitronics
  • Creating puzzles on the foam cutter
  • Applying design-thinking to sports
  • Fun free-play with friends 

Shady Hill teachers and visiting faculty provide unique experiences inside and outside the classroom each week. Kids work in grade-level cohorts—rising 1st & 2nd graders and rising 3rd - 5th graders. Cohorts are no larger than 16 each.
