A week-long adventure blending Digital Technology & Outdoor Learning for 8-12 year olds

At Immersive Minds STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) summer camp we invite children from 8-12 years old to join us for a week-long adventure. We’re turning Craigie’s Farm in South Queensferry into a STEM lab where children will develop 21st century skills using Minecraft, Coding, 3D Printing, and more to solve real-world sustainability problems.

Our STEM camp is entirely unique and built on over two decades of educational experience in over 60 countries. Based on a working farm, children will experience a blend of outdoor learning and technology-based activities as they solve problems posed by the team at Craigie's Farm.

 

Children will have guided tours from farm staff, and have an opportunity to explore some of the real challenges of running a modern farm. Our education team will provide guided activities on a range of digital tools and technologies. Working in teams, children will design, develop and deliver their solutions.  

All children will receive an Immersive Minds Summer STEM Camp Certificate of Completion.

Join our team of global educators on the week of 5th - 9th August for a Summer Camp with a difference!
