Stay connected with Camp Inspire

Social distancing in light of the global pandemic may have suspended many traditional summer experiences, like FIU CASE’s Camp Explore and Discover, but it doesn’t mean that kids have to stop having fun while learning.

During the month of July 2020, jump into scientific inquiry and investigate the furthest corners of the galaxy with FIU CASE experts – all from home – with Camp Inspire.

How does virtual camp work?
Hosted on Zoom, sessions are broken into age groups and facilitated by trained Education Outreach staff. Experiences include:

  • Interactive demonstrations
  • Guided hands-on activities
  • Virtual field trips
  • Chats with experts
  • Games and more

Once registered, parents will receive Zoom links, schedules and digital resources along with a camp packet in the mail that includes activity sheets for the week.
