During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Grand Forks Public Library pivoted our STEM programming from in-person activities to virtual (our first virtual STEM program!). Using the NASA ASTRO CAMP® Community Partners Program (ACCP) and Beanstack, we’ve planned a five-session virtual NASA ASTRO CAMP®.
Families will be able to pick up kits during the week of July 1. Then videos will be rolled out throughout the month of July that cover activities using materials from the kits. All of the videos were filmed at home by Delores, our STEM coordinator. She demonstrates the activities described in the kits so campers can follow along at home.
There are two virtual camps: one for grades K-2 and the other for grades 3-6. Because the program must be interactive, we are planning online classes for the at-home activities.
This series was created using a NASA @ My Library grant.
Grand Forks Public Library is putting a spin on NASA ASTRO CAMP® by making it entirely virtual.
