STEM Xposure Local Camp
On June 7, 2021; Stem Xposure kicked off it annual summer camp. This year our theme was ‘Champ Camp’. Through architectural design, we decided to honor the ‘champions’ of Tampa Bay. On the heels of the historic Super Bowl win by The Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well as the Back to Back Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightening, Tampa Bay had been renamed ‘Champa Bay’. During the 11 day virtual camp, participants from all over the world learned how to use SketchUp Technology to design tiny homes to help combat the affordable housing crisis that plagues so many communities all over the world.
Every morning participants received words of encouragement from various pioneers and champions in the fields of technology, architectural design and sports.
Dr. Gladys B West: A NASA Mathematician who developed the Global Positioning System (GPS) , Mental Health Advocate.
Antonio Tarver: 5 time Light Heavyweight Champion, Olympic Bronze Medalist, 2021 Florida Boxing Hall Of Fame Inductee.
Zack Griffin: Host of Netflix series ‘Tiny Home Nation.’
Steven Jackson: Los Angeles Rams all time leading rusher, future NFL Hall of Fame, Architect.
Overall, the camp allowed participants the opportunity to create designs that will be turned into tiny homes in the Tampa Bay Area. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to grow by introducing STEM to kids all over the world. See you in 2022!
