UW STEM Summer Camp Coming to W.F. West Aug. 16-18


The University of Washington is partnering with the Chehalis and Hoquiam school districts to host a three-day STEM summer camp at W.F. West High School Aug. 16-18.

Registration can be filed online at stemchehalis.org. The camp is open to all incoming high schoolers and costs $25. Scholarships are available.

Students will learn from experts in the fields of engineering and medicine as they “share some of the most cutting-edge technologies,” reads a flyer for the event.

The camp will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. all three days.

During the first section of the camp, students will break out into teams to solve a problem using a 3D printer. This exercise will build a core of engineering skills, the event says.

The second section will focus on medicine. Students will engage with industry leaders in population health to explore data visualization tools. As part of a hands-on mock task force, students will investigate health concerns and give policy recommendations based on their findings.
