Full STEAM ahead! We�re starting off Summer Camp at The Malvern School with a roster full of fun and educational activities focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. STEAM learning promotes problem-solving, creative and analytical thinking as children explore, play, and try new things. Summer provides a perfect opportunity to hone in on these skills with activities that highlight different aspects of STEAM that promote learning while having fun. This week, our campers were engineers, artists, and even mad scientists! Students put on their STEAM caps to think like a scientist at The Malvern School of Malvern for a special visit with Mr. Vince and Miss Andrea. Students learned about different subjects such as elasticity, chemical reactions, and even learned how to make their own slime! Mr. Vince, who is a middle school STEAM teacher commented on the importance of STEAM in early childhood education, "Practicing STEAM allows for hands-on learning and exploring of different topics. Even at a young age, these children are learning to be inquisitive which is such an important trait to have as they grow and learn."

The Malvern Schol of Erial students were schooled by a mad scientist during his special visit!

Students at The Malvern School of Blue Bell created robot sculptures out of tin foil- but not before they snagged these robo-photo ops!

Students got their science lesson firsthand at The Malvern School of Horsham by learning about the lifecycle of a caterpillar and watching them turn into butterflies.

The Malvern School of King of Prussia expressed their creativity and practiced their art skills by painting with feathers!

The Malvern School of Oaks practiced their engineerings skills with the "How Can We Build It?" Challenge. Students observed various images and used different materials to recreate what they saw.
