Baylor University School of Education is hosting the second year of STEM+ Camp Launch, a week-long day camp focused on rocket science, for rising fifth graders from three Transformation Waco schools. Co-founded last year by Suzanne Nesmith, Ph.D., associate professor of STEM education, and Sandi Cooper, Ph.D., professor of mathematics education, the program is funded by a grant from Waco’s Cooper Foundation and held at Baylor’s Mayborn Museum.

STEM+ Camp Launch includes two week-long camp sessions running Monday through Friday the weeks of June 3 and June 10. During the camp, students learn about scientific, mathematics and engineering principles through projects like engineering, which includes building rockets and racing model cars.
