About this Camp

The STEAM Project
 

The STEAM Project is for creative kids who love science, technology, robotics, and design projects! Students learn while they invent, digitally fabricate, and build things through hands-on experiences with current and new technologies. Woodworking, 3D printing, electronics, and coding, are just some of the activities students get to explore all year-round at The STEAM Project!


The Our Kids review of The STEAM Project

 

It’s easy to think about STEAM instruction through the stuff—the 3D printers, the robotics, the makerspaces—though it’s as much, if not more, about people. The first three people in this particular environment were three teachers who wanted to spend their summers having fun while helping kids have fun learning about their world and their talents. Jay Wengle, one of them, brings an infectious energy to the work at hand, which is working with others to explore new concepts and apply them to new ideas. Communication and teamwork is part of it, as is learning to express yourself to others as much as you listen to what they have to say. The stuff, at the end of the day, is great—the kids solve problems, together, in unique ways—but it’s the relationships, and a way of being in the world, that is the biggest takeaway. These sessions are expertly, professionally run, and are supported through a wide array of resources. The camp, thanks to the personality and passion of the founders, is an expression of the wider community, with lots of diverse partners choosing to take part, including local schools, merchants, and the curling club. Session themes keep things fresh for returning campers. Enrollment is intentionally kept small to maintain the quality of the interactions. In every way, there's a lot to love.

Reviews & Testimonials


He wished his day school is the STEAM project. :)
Winnie Y. — Parent

This is the second year my son has attended the STEAM project. He enjoys the camp very much and finds the staff super friendly. He stayed most of the summer for the two years and will continue to come. The topics are fascinating and each project is unique. He wished his day school is the STEAM project. :)


Our son has found a new passion in robotics!
Tara C. — Parent

Our son has been at The Steam Project for almost a year and he has enjoyed all of the classes. We started in the amazing studio with robotics and have continued virtually with coding. The teachers are very knowledgeable and adapt to the pace of the kids. And our son, who generally doesn’t enjoy after school classes, looks forward to his time spent with The Steam Project. Thank you so much for helping him find what is now a passion of his!


The most awesome camp in Richmond Hill!
Daniela P. — Parent

In particular, I want to comment on the way that everyone greets the kids upon arrival. We’ve attended many different camps. I cannot begin to tell you how “drab” and unenthusiastic some staff members are at other camps. The camp leaders’ positive attitude really affects the way that the kids go into camp for the day. The leaders immediately greet my kids with a huge smile on their faces. For the first time ever, my kids leave my side at morning drop off without even saying good bye and without turning back to look at me. I know that this is such a small thing, but it’s incredible how so many people neglect to portray that warm and welcoming feeling towards children; and it’s amazing how much a warm greeting can translate to a feeling of security and happiness for the kids.

Director's Message

Jay Wengle, Project Director

Our vision at The STEAM Project is to prepare youth for a world that increasingly demands scientific and technological innovation, thoughtful design, and a focus on empathy.

Our programs support and foster imagination and creativity by providing youth with hands-on experiences and skill development using new and emerging technologies that enable limitless possibilities for design and invention.

Our mission at the STEAM Project is to foster empathy through a human-centred approach to design that we call "Design with Purpose." 

 

Sincerely,

​​​James (Jay) Wengle,

 

Why S.T.E.A.M?

S.T.E.A.M is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. As youth design and create, they will learn about and develop skills in these areas as they relate to the problems they are trying to solve. We believe that the best learning happens in context and when there is an immediate need to know or understand something. Instead of learning about science or mathematics or art in isolation, we focus on problems that need solutions and require learning and skills in many of the STEAM disciplines simultaneously.

 

Our Story

The STEAM Project was founded by three Science teachers with a passion for working with youth and for fostering creativity and innovative thinking by making new and emerging technologies more accessible. After realizing some of the limitations of teaching in a structured school setting, we felt compelled to develop programs that supplement school learning in a meaningful way and that offer a deeper exploration and interaction with topics in science and technology. We chose a design approach to learning because it allows us to incorporates the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics well. It is also an enjoyable and natural way to learn.  ​
