ETL, College of Education, UIC, STEM Summer Camp

STEM Summer Camp

The Education Technology Lab (ETL) Science and Technology Summer Camp program at the UIC College of Education teaches students to work with computer and technology equipment (drones, race cars, 3D Printing, Double Robotics, Ozobot, Arduino, Raspberry Pi) and to take part in science projects in areas of Natural Science, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, and Engineering. UIC staff and student instructors teach camp sessions.

Childrens, kids engage in activities and lessons through the use of Robotics, Simulations, Programming, LEGO Robotics, Webpage Creation, Animation & Multimedia Creation during annual UIC ETL STEM Summer Camp.

During previous Summer Camp programs, we had building projects that involved the use of solar energy, Blender, a powerful software, to create cool 3D movie animations, cars, and much more. Every year we occasionally edit/add new contents.

Dates & Time:

Each day, campers meet in the Education Technology Lab, College of Education, UIC.

The camp is five days: Monday through Friday.

The camp starts at 10 AM and ends at 4 PM.


We will not provide lunch; therefore, every student must bring his or her own lunch and will not be allowed to leave the building during lunch. We strongly recommend that participants get a good night’s sleep and have a nutritious breakfast prior to attending each day. This will help them to be alert and on task during the sessions.

Documentation and Evaluation:

During some sessions, we will document our STEM program with photos and video clips. Some of these will be included in a report that will be prepared for the Dean of the College of Education. We will also collect observational and short interview information from the students during their involvement; this information will help us to improve our work. Participation is completely voluntary. Students will not be graded neither evaluated in any certain way.
