During the second week of Easter holidays, Sint-Pieters-Leeuw is organizing a STEAM camp for fifth and sixth graders.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The camp is being held at the La Equilende Youth Center and of course all the guidelines for Coronavirus will be taken into account.
During the STEAM camp, children playfully learn the language, learn about the parts of STEAM in an easily accessible way and learn about part of the municipality’s entertainment show.
Ten children can participate in the camp and discover the inner Einstein, Curie or Warhol. The workshops are taught by a professional from Bamm! It is funded by the province.
An Speeckaert, Alderman for Youth: “By engaging children in language stimulation in a positive way, we want to encourage them to use and practice the Dutch language more. With this we especially want to promote the daring to speak. We also want to introduce children to leisure activities in the municipality. This way we want to encourage them to use and practice the Dutch language more. The long-lasting effect of Steam Week achieves; it offers children who speak a little Dutch at home more permanent opportunities to speak Dutch outside of school.
