Biloxi STEM Academy
Students in the Biloxi School District are enjoying a week of learning in the form of STEM.
With assistance from Keesler Air Force Base and the Mississippi State Extension Center, third through seventh graders spent the day building airplanes, catapults and even air rockets.
Biloxi High School Instructional Coach Neketia Holloway tells News 25 that it is important to host the camp during the summer, giving students an avenue to learn when they’re out of school.
“I think it is important to have camps like so this so the kids are still involved in school and they don’t lose what they have over the summer months, so I think it’s very important. We do this for four days and I see some of the kids that actually participated last year and they’re back this year. I think that’s a good thing.”
The STEM camp wraps up this Thursday with a field trip to Stennis Space Center.
