DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) — Young students that attended the Denham Springs STEM and Robotics Center Camp during July have been introduced to learn new concepts of science.

The camp is referred to as ‘Mrs. Moore’s Science and Robotics All-Stars Camp’ in honor of the founder of the yearly camp. STEM instructor and school sponsor of the Denham Robotics Venom Robotics Team, Daniel Eiland, led the sessions, along with Moore. The camp is a great way to learn science through hands-on experiences for students in grades 4-6.

“These camps are a great way for students to really see first-hand what exciting doors our STEM courses can open for them,” Eiland said. “We know that the more kids ‘experience’ science, the less it becomes a class subject and the more it becomes a hobby and passion.”

Eiland said the students had the option to create their camp experience. They had the chance to discover different scientific disciplines with hands-on projects, as well as had the time to build and compete with robots that have been used at the high school.

“We want students and their parents to have a good idea of what we offer, so when they enter high school, they can plan out their class schedules in a way that allows them dive into STEM learning right away. “And any time we can introduce science concepts to students through practical applications, it just makes those concepts real, easier to understand and more exciting to explore,” STEM & Robotic Center Director Michael Simmons said.
