Summer STEM Opportunities

Alexa Cafe

Alexa Cafe | July 22–26; July 29–August 2; August 5–9 (three separate weekly offerings)

Alexa Café is an all-girls summer camp where girls learn to code, design, and engineer in small, collaborative clusters. iD Tech believes that whether she’s designing a sleek webpage or learning to code creatively, technology shouldn’t be intimidating or uninspiring. In the right environment, it’s cool, meaningful, and life-changing. Our curriculum emphasizes leadership, and entrepreneurship, and philanthropy. We offer week-long day sessions for girls ages 1015. Please click here for more information and to register.

Ethics in Action: STEM for Humanity | July 15–26, 2019

A new signature summer program from the Ethics Institute at Kent Place School is here! The mission of the Ethics in Action: STEM for Humanity program is to explore the intersection of technological and scientific advancements and the ethical challenges that arise along with this new frontier. Participants will broaden their insight into the struggles of a differently-abled population, through interaction, collaboration, research, and dive into and utilize a Human-Centered Design Process.

This two-week program will partner with institutions including Princeton University, and utilize the KPS Makerspace to learn new skills and create something original while focusing on Human-Centered Design, and the relationship between need and invention while promoting the use of an ethical lens/approach to the world.

Open to all schools, rising ninth through twelfth graders. Priority application deadline is April 1. Applications will continue to be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until the program reaches capacity. Click here for more information and to register.
