Iowa 4-H Camping

 
2016 Iowa Summer 4-H STEM Camps: More than Just Camping: A Learning Experience in the Great Outdoors

 
For more than 100 years, 4-H has helped youth discover and foster a passion for science, engineering, technology and math (STEM) but has done it in context to enhance youth citizenship, leadership, the arts, communication and healthy living.

4-H Mission: 4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential through youth and adult partnerships and research-based experiences.

 
Adventures in nature are only part of the experience young people will have at our 4 or 5-night 4-H STEM Summer Camps. 4-H STEM camps offer a hands-on approach to developing the excitement and skills necessary for youth to succeed in a safe and fun setting.  The 4-H camp program starts youth on the path to becoming informed citizens and the next generation of scientists and engineers we need for our communities to thrive. Using our research-based Experiential Learning Model in a safe outdoor setting allows youth to connect what they are learning to their daily lives.

Design Dimensions Camp - July 10th-15th (9th - 12th Grade)

This immersive experience will help you get a sense of what it is like to be in college. Days will be spent at the College of Design on the Iowa State University campus, engaging in a series of college-structured courses. Students will explore the principles of 2D and 3D space as they apply to the design of interior spaces, architectural forms and product designs. You will work with drawing, rendering and modeling to communicate visual information about the built and natural environment.
