What an incredible day we had yesterday at our London Fanshawe STEM Camp. STEM Camp and Barbie event was a huge success!
STEM Camp and Mattel partnered to remind children that they can be anything. Over 60 STEM Camp campers experienced Barbie launching into space for the first time ever!
It was a morning full of learning and fun. Campers learned about the space, what was going to happen with the ballon that
was carrying Barbie, gravity, air resistance, the temperatures Barbie would face, etc. Also, they created a special post card that flew with Barbie and be received back again next week.
To celebrate this special day every camper received a Barbie Astronaut at every STEM Camp in Ontario -reaching over 800 children!
The Big Surprise
At 11:00 am STEM Camp live streamed the space launch to all 48 locations so every camper could participate. Campers were inspired by Aerospace Engineer Natalie Panek, “My one key message is never stop learning, dream big and reach for the stars.” In a few minutes, Barbie transversed the stratosphere and crossed the “space gates”. It was an incredible moment for everyone there, children and adults, boys and girls!
“I most liked when I saw Barbie flying up to the sky inside the balloon. At this time I thought it was myself” Gabi Aguiar, 5 years old.
STEM Camp remains committed to finding. Relative ways to make Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fun for kids. We are also committed to fostering girls’ passion for STEM and closing the gender gap STEM education and career fields still experience. STEM is everywhere and is for everyone.
Don’t forget it was only STEM Camp’s first week. We still have 7 weeks ahead of us to leave your children amazed by the world of STEM!
