We are pleased to announce the launch of the Acera SEEDS StudioLab! Where, under tutelage of MIT Media Lab alum Alisha Panjwani, students can merge science, engineering, creativity and design to bring their ideas and stories to life! Look for StudioLab sessions in our Summer STEAM Camp and After School Enrichment programs.
Acera’s Summer STEAM Camp
(June 13 – August 26, 2016)
Available to both Acera and non-Acera students in elementary and middle school (7-14), our camp program extends Acera’s rich STEAM learning experiences to the summer months. Browse over 100 sessions on acerasummercamp.org. Students can design, build and race a raft. They can go to Mini Med School, or learn with a real Boston biotech scientist in our state-of-the-art science lab. They can build a Strandbeest, discover Ancient Egypt, make their own music video or comic strip, and so much more!
After School STEAMrichment
Open to the community, our After School Enrichment program offers students opportunities to engage in hands-on, STEAM-rich learning with like-minded peers. Led by our specialist educators and held in our state-of-the-art learning spaces, this is the perfect program for students who want to deeply explore Science, Chemistry, Math, Game Design and Strategy, Political Science, Leadership, and so much more!
Science, Music and the Art of Creative Thinking
On April 22, we hosted a conversation with leading Boston scientists who are also artists – and vice versa – about the neurology of creative thinking, about how music is fundamental to the mind, and about the role it can play in scientific discovery and STEM education. It was a great a performance of minds and musicians. Watch the video here!
Groundbreaking Science for the Whole Family
More than 220 children and adults joined us for our Spring Innovator Symposium on 4/23–many of whom had never been to Acera before. We enjoyed being able to create community around fearless exploration of STEM subjects for all ages. Browse through our Facebook album to learn more about our presenters and their innovations!
