HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) – Michigan Technological University is hosting a series of three-day science and engineering camps at the Nara Nature Center in Houghton.
The camps, geared towards kids in first through fifth grade, teach students about different professions and creative processes in engineering and science.
On Thursday, first and second graders learned about engineering by building forts in the woods.
“When we thing about STEAM, science, technology, engineering, art and math, they have that ability to be creative and express themselves in that way as well,” said MTU Center for Science and Environmental Outreach Geo-Heritage Educator, Erika Vye.
Vye says the camps also teach skills like working together, conflict resolution, and problem solving.
