IES Partners with the Blackstone Valley Ed Hub and the Northbridge
Public Schools to Offer Summer STEM Camps
With the aid of a $15,000 Summer School Expansion and Engagement Matching Grant administered by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, grades 6-10 students from Northbridge Publics Schools participated in STEM-based hands-on learning this summer. IES collaborated with the Blackstone Valley Ed Hub and the Northbridge Public Schools to provide a two-week camp for high school students and a second two-week camp for middle school students. Students attended the BVEdHub for two days a week and Northbridge High School for two days a week during the two-week camp. Northbridge Superintendent Amy McKinstry shared her praise about the program: “We are so grateful to the BVEdHub and IES for partnering with us and helping to develop this amazing summer program for our middle and high school participants. The kids were engaged in some amazing and authentic learning experiences, and it was wonderful to see their creative juices flowing again after such a difficult year and half with COVID.” Below are some pictures of activities from the camp which featured introductions to Engineering Design, 3D Printing, CNC Machining, CNC Laser Cutting, and Robotics .
