Swimming with the Sharks Camp

This camp is for middle school students who want to better their world. Using their creativity, participants will take original ideas and turn them into real inventions using STEAM principles. Ingenuity, engineering, design and finally construction of their projects leads up to a Shark Tank-style presentation before the Penn State judges.
