SOMERS – The Professional and Continuing Education Department at UW-Parkside will be offering STEAM-based programs in the form of weekday summer camps to middle school and high school students that run from July to August.

“Our STEAM-based programs cover skills critical in current and future economies,” Javan Pham, program coordinator of the Professional and Continuing Education Department, said. “Practicing skills such as innovation, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving and collaboration will prepare children for success.”
