Summer Camp 2022 Cancelled

希望大家一切安好。對於台灣人的每個人來說,這真是個不安的春天。我們原本很開心,準備要到台灣各地去舉辦我們的STEAM營隊,也真的很期待要把我們的PBL夏令營帶給孩子們,幫助他們學習如何用英語思考。然而,在我們慎重地評估後,孩子們的「安全」是我們最大的考量..... 因此我們很遺憾地宣布取消2022年的實體夏令營。

儘管今年暑假坊間其它固定地點的實體營隊或許還是會開放,但考量到我們的老師團隊是需要旅行到各地上課的,因而擔心疫情的傳播是無法避免的。此外,防疫規定「一個班若有一個人染疫,整個班就需要停課3天」,讓開辦實體課充滿了極大的挑戰。

因此,我們懷著最誠摯的歉意,取消了2022 Summer of STEAM夏令營。但別擔心!我們的團隊已經在準備Shine Online Club,要把更高規的線上課帶入您的家中。您一定會喜歡這個能讓孩子真正投入參與的線上課。期待現在與整個暑假都能在線上看到您的孩子們。更進一步的活動訊息請看我們日後的FB粉專或網頁貼文。

等疫情回穩,願意出門參加活動的人數足夠時,我們就會馬上安排週末實體活動。敬祝大家安全健康,我們線上見!

Camp Description

Our mission is to provide an exceptional STEAM camp experience where kids learn how to experiment, analyze, solve problems, and think for themselves in an English environment.

Dr. Sparks and the S TEAM will help your kids take their English up to the next level in our Summer of STEAM camps in cities across Taiwan. Our whole-English PBL summer camps are created to train Taiwanese students to use their English thinking through scientific problem solving. It’s like an escape room meets a science camp.

Problem Based Learning (PBL) will show your kids how to solve problems using the different disciplines of STEAM. A member of the S TEAM will start each day with an adventure. They will introduce an idea to the students through demonstrations and experiments. Then, a twist in the story will be presented to the students. They will need to work together to identify the problem, brainstorm possible solutions, test and analyze their ideas, and finally solve the problem.

Our camps are designed for Taiwanese students who are learning English. These camps are designed for kids of all English levels. We carefully select language to use sentence patterns and vocabulary that they are already familiar with from school. We don’t focus on teaching them grammar. Instead, we provide them with an English environment that is interesting and challenging where they can activate their English thinking. We will train your children to improve their focus and use of critical thinking in an English environment for longer periods of time.

Our S TEAM teachers are all highly experienced foreign teachers. We are all native English-speaking foreigners with between 5-20 years teaching experience in Taiwan. It’s important for our instructors to understand what it’s like to learn a foreign language and local Taiwanese culture. Our teachers are focused on helping your kids develop their problem-solving skills through highly interactive activities. Our local assistants work closely with our teachers and students to make sure everyone has the help they need. We will have a maximum instructor ratio of 1:8.
