Cleveland State Community College is hosting a variety of science, technology, engineering and math camps this summer, including STEM-related Multimedia Camp, Bio-Chemistry Camp and a Culinary Arts Camp — Baking Bonanza.

The Multimedia Camp will be July 7-11, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for rising sixth- through eighth-graders. During this weeklong camp, participants will learn just what it takes to make a short production TV show from in front of the camera, as well as behind it.

Campers can rotate project roles (spending time as a director, camera operator or actor) or choose to focus on improving their skills in one particular area. Students learn how to shoot and edit a live production show, and then share it with the world through the Web using media outlets such as YouTube. The cost of this camp is $215 and includes a T-shirt, lunch and material fees.

The Bio-Chemistry Camp will be held July 14-18, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for rising students in grades nine through 12. Participants will spend a week in a lab setting up and performing experiments. They will also learn techniques from local industry experts.

This camp is perfect for students eager to learn more about biotechnology and chemistry, or who are interested in pursuing a science degree or career. This week of camp will expose students to demonstrations, experiments, and knowledge that cannot be learned in a classroom.

The cost of this camp is $225 and includes a T-shirt, lunch and material fees.

The Culinary Arts Camp — Baking Bonanza will be held July 21-25, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.,for rising sixth- through eighth-graders. Participants will learn culinary arts by discovering the chemistry, methodology and cooking styles that create great food.

Participants will learn from a professional chef with over 30 years of experience in the industry. In one week, campers will plan and prepare a wide variety of delicious meals, learn various prep and cooking techniques, practice food safety, determine a budget and serve a complete made-from-scratch meal.

The cost of this camp is $215 and includes an apron, chef hat, lunch, and materials fee.

“The general theme for these camps is that we really want to provide early exposure for the students to help them with their career paths in their potential pursuits of STEM-related careers,” stated Alyssa Douglass, project coordinator for OneSource. “We are really excited about our new camp offerings and hope to expand on them in the future.”
