Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) come alive during The National WWII Museum's Summer STEM Innovation Camp! Learn about the ingenuity and innovation of American victory in WWII through topics such as aeronautics, engineering, physics, biology, and medicine. Campers will have hands-on opportunities with real WWII artifacts plus a special behind-the-scenes showing of the Museum's 4D experience Beyond All Boundaries.

Each day, campers will explore different WWII STEM challenges as well as different areas and resources of the Museum campus, both indoor and outdoor. During Summer Innovation Camp, campers will investigate the science of camouflage and experiment to develop a synthetic substitute to rubber or to make a floating boat out of Pykrete. Campers will also work on a weeklong special project that they will show off and test on the final day of camp. Each day of camp will also feature time when campers may choose to pursue activities from a range of different subjects in which they are most interested.

Drop-off and Pick-up Details:
Drop off your camper between 8:45 a.m. and 8:55 a.m. at the entrance to Louisiana Memorial Pavilion on Magazine Street, just before it intersects with Andrew Higgins Drive. You may pull into the bus zone where Museum staff will greet your child.

Pickup time for all camps is between 3:00 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. Cars can line up on the passenger side of Magazine Street in the bus zone (a map will be provided prior to camp session). Parents will be given a tag to display on their front windshield to identify their camper. If a parent must pick their child up early or misses the pickup window, they must park and come inside the Museum.
