  • STEAM Summer Ignite

    summerignite
    This summer, FCPS will be hosting Summer Ignite, a free summer enrichment program across the district. Summer Ignite 2021 at STEAM Academy will focus on the theme “Star of
    the Show.”
     
    Each session will adopt a reality television show: the Amazing Race, America’s Got Talent, and Survivor. Between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., students will rotate between activity stations and enjoy a free breakfast and lunch. Teachers will structure the rotations and develop hands-on engaging activities and projects to build problem solving skills, critical thinking, math, reading, writing, and science skills. At the conclusion of the Summer Ignite program, National Honor Society will host a ‘back-to-school’ night for students and families to attend in anticipation of the upcoming school year.
     
    If you would like for your current STEAM student to participate in one of the following sessions please complete the Google form below to indicate your interest.
     
    Session 1: During “STEAM’s Got Talent,” students will rotate through physical activity, art exploration, and remediation or enrichment for English. These rotations will be tailored to the
    needs of the individual students, but might include: cooking, career preparation, college preparation, Cross Stitch, Reading, Writing, and Social Emotional Learning. On Fridays, students will participate in a camp-wide challenge day that mirrors the session’s theme to develop collaboration, creativity, and artistic expression.
     
    Session 2: During “Amazing Race: Race to Graduation,” students will rotate between four, 45 minute sessions that focus on content development, remediation, and enrichment. Each student will enroll in: physical activity, art exploration, and remediation or enrichment in Math, Science, or Social Studies. These rotations will be tailored to the needs of the individual students, but might include: Math, Social Studies, Science, fun elective courses, or Social Emotional Learning.
