ECU Art Camp Aims To Inspire Kids About Science, Math
Dozens of kids are attending a creative camp to get them thinking more about math and science. 62 campers from grades K-10 are attending the Stem to Steam camp this week at ECU’s School of Art. The camp explores science, technology, engineering, and math through art forms like metal design, 3D printing and wood working. ECU students are working alongside faculty and some art teachers from Pitt County Schools to put on the camp. The kids are exploring everything from preparing metal to be shaped to using a CNC router to build their own board games. “It seems really cool that we’re using things that like professional people use,” said Maddie Quinn. “Now you know how some people make the materials that they make.” The camp is funded, in part, by the North Carolina Space Grant distributed by NASA.
