K-State Olathe

STEM Summer Camps for Middle School Students

This summer, K-State's Olathe campus is offering a series of summer camps designed to support STEM-based knowledge in a fun and safe environment.

Camps and content are designed for students entering sixth grade and leaving eighth grade.

 

Fun with Food Science: Dairy Discovery | July 6-10

Do you like to cook (and eat)? This camp is for the junior scientist who wants to know the how and why of food. Focusing on dairy products, campers will conduct cool experiments, try cheese making and create unique ice cream flavors in our state-of-the-art kitchen. At the end of the week, campers will prepare and share treats with their families and guests.

 

All About Animals: Caring for Furry Friends | July 13-17

Do you love animals? Are you interested in a career in caring for pets? Campers will enjoy learning about animals through interactive, animal-related activities, games, crafts, guest speakers and interactions with animals. Activities include making pet treats, a behind the scenes tour of an animal shelter, care and surgical techniques from veterinarians and interacting with service animals and their handlers.
