A summer camp in Richmond Hill for kids interested in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). Programs encourage campers to think about how new inventions will improve the lives of others.
The STEAM Project is the largest youth-focused maker space and STEAM-based summer camp in the York Region.
It was founded by three science teachers with a passion for working with youth and for fostering creativity and innovative thinking. After realizing some of the limitations of teaching in a school setting, they felt compelled to develop programs that supplement school learning in a meaningful way and that offer deeper exploration and interaction between science, technology and design.
Programs make new and emerging technologies more accessible to youth, with a project-based approach to learning that incorporates STEAM disciplines in an enjoyable and natural way.
The STEAM Project has summer camps, March break camps, occasional workshops, and science- and technology-themed birthday parties.
