Registration open for STEM camp


Northern Essex Community College is accepting registrations for its summer camp program, STEM College for Kids. The program features the fun and games of a traditional summer camp with an added emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Held on the college’s Haverhill campus at 100 Elliott St., the camp offers four one-week sessions, with a junior session for 9- to 11-year-olds and a senior session for 12- to 14-year-olds. This year’s courses include Kitchen Chemistry, which looks at home kitchens as science labs; Spa Science, which explores chemical reactions when concocting fizzers, lotions, and shampoo; and May the Force Be with You, which gives campers an opportunity to study gravity through games, toys, and experiments. STEM College for Kids will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays from July 8 through Aug. 2; extended care is available before and after camp. Participants enroll in three courses a day at a cost of $70 per class per week. Courses are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
