(Estherville)-Registration is underway for the Iowa Lakes Community College "Virtual STEMulous" Camp, KUOO's Becky Thoreson has details:

Iowa Lakes Community College Virtual Stemulous Camp is June 8-11 

The Iowa Lakes Community College Talent Search STEM Camp will be held in early June.

Trio Director Trudy Ahrens says the virtual camp is for students entering grades 6-8 in the Fall.  "So the Virtual STEMulous Camp is for Talent Search participants.  There is a company called Paradigm Shift that developed a virtual stemulous camp and they have kits.  So, every student will actually be provided a kit.  The kit includes 7 STEM activities and all of the materials that you need to be able to do the STEM kits at home.  What we're going to do is drop the kits off at 5 different locations where parents can pick up the kits."

She notes that registration is due soon.  "Our deadline is going to be May 27th because, along with the kits, we're also putting together a grocery box because we would typically provide all of the meals if the camp would have taken place on site like it was intended to when the students stay in the dorm.  So, on June 5th, the parents will pick up the grocery box along with the STEM kit at that time."
