Experience an unforgettable adventure at Zombie STEM Summer Camp at Salem State University. Create your own character in an ongoing storyline that never repeats. Choose your special skills and defensive weapons, all while integrating hands-on STEM educational values...and blasting zombies.
At Guardian Adventures STEM Summer Camps, we inspire our campers to become lifelong learners who want to make a difference in the world. They learn and grow as heroes within interactive stories that are safe, exciting, and educational while learning the tenets of a hero: courage, honor, and compassion.
Watch your child grow into a hero, aiming their NERF blaster for the battle of a lifetime against a horde of ragged zombies. All of our camps are completely immersive worlds with actors, custom costumes, and special effects, all while incorporating STEM Education. What is STEM?
Science | How can we know for sure this strange creature is in line for the throne? Learning genotypes can prove how you protect the lineage. Technology | Evil forces have turned the land dark. Can you master circuitry in time to shed some light before the undead arrive? Engineering | You must cross a raging river to reach the castle before the invading armies. Time to build a boat from scratch! Math | You’ve almost recovered the stolen artifact but one final riddle remains. The coded answer is carved in the cavern walls and looks eerily similar to the quadratic formula.
At our camps, young heroes are excited to learn, confident from the obstacles they’ve overcome, and make lifelong friends in an adventure they will cherish for years to come.
“Beneath the realm of sword and sorcery lies a foundation of hard science...Scientific knowledge helps the heroes prevail, so they are motivated to research, consult with their teachers and librarians, and master the content to ensure that their spells don’t backfire,” - NPR
