STEAM Summer School 2021

 Life on Earth does not happen without challenges; the forces that create life can potentially destroy it. Join us this Summer for an exciting 5 weeks of learning about the wild world we all live in and the disasters that threaten to impact us every day. We will create, engineer, and design ways to protect ourselves from not only natural disasters but man-made ones as well. 

 

地球上の生命は、困難なしには成り立ちません。生命を生み出す力が、生命を破壊する可能性もあるのです。この夏は、私たちが住んでいる野生の世界と、日々私たちに影響を及ぼす恐れのある災害について、5週間を通じて楽しみながら学びます。私たちは、自然災害だけでなく、人為的な災害からも身を守るための方法を創造し、設計し、デザインします。
