Students from Battle Creek Public Schools wrapped up their Science Technology and Engineering Preview Summer (STEPS) Camp June 18 by touring the Pew Grand Rapids Campus and building motors.
Sara Maas, outreach coordinator for the Padnos College of Engineering and Computing, said COVID-19 restrictions meant classes about model airplane building, aviation and coding were live-streamed to campers at their homes during the week. The camp's last day offered campers in-person tours of the Innovation Design Center and other engineering facilities, plus classroom and outdoor activities.
For the third consecutive year, 30 BCPS students attended the camp as a cohort supported by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
A second week of STEPS Camp begins June 21.
