Health STEM Camp
Learning is FUN!


In 2023, middle school students learned the basics of Computer Animated Design (CAD) and 3D printing.  These skills were put to the test on the final day of the camp as the students launched rockets they designed and printed. 

High school students focused on Arduino coding to make their own healthcare inspired sensors, worked with RCC healthcare educators to learn how medical grade devices work, and had a visit from VCU Health’s LifeEvac helicopter!
