Chennault STEM Innovation Summer Camps are an exciting opportunity for Children in grades 5-8 to engage in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activities. All camps will be taught on-site at Chennault Aviation and Military Museum, so students will interact with authentic primary source artifacts making history personally meaningful and exceptionally vivid. Students will learn about the technological and scientific innovations used in WWI through current conflicts. Various subjects will be taught including aviation, communication, and medicine. Four sections of the STEM camp will be offered with two available for boys and girls and two for girls only. Camps will be taught by Tanya Shlosman, a local educator who holds both her BA and MA degrees in American History and Museum Studies. Examples of advances in WWI include the introduction of aircraft, tanks, and chemical weapons. WWII saw advances in medicine. Current conflicts saw the advance of drones and computer technology.
