BGCM's 2016 STEAM Summer Camp Video
Our 8-week Summer Program, focused on STEM+Arts (STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) for students ages 8-17. Students came from NY and NJ, and international students came from China, just to attend our program. Daily activities included STEM instruction, Creative Arts, Literacy and Financial Literacy, where students spent 6 solid weeks delving into the book, Rich Kid, Smart Kid, and Rich Dad, Smart Dad (by Robert Kiyosaki) and creating business ideas and products. Numerous career professional such as anesthesiologists, pediatricians, civil engineers, environmental scientists, and patent attorneys came to speak with our students about career options. Students dressed in professional attire when TD bank came in to offer a financial literacy workshop and we were invited by United Airlines to visit the airport; as we toured the warehouse, saw $25 million dollar engines, cockpits, planes and more. The goal of our programs are to develop capable students who can function in a highly technological world. Our programs aim to improve minority student growth, close achievement gaps, decrease dropout rates, and increase high school graduation rates.
