ITC to Offer More Steam Camps Thanks to Grant

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Located in 307 Withers/W.T.S. Building, the ITC supports students, faculty and staff in the Richard W. Riley College of Education on the use of technology as an innovative tool for enhancing teaching and learning. 
  • Corley-Moore applied for the grant from American Association of University Women (AAUW) Rock Hill chapter. 

ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Winthrop University’s Instructional Technology Center (ITC) will expand its work with STEAM camps, thanks to a grant secured by ITC Director Shaniqua Corley-Moore.

Corley-Moore applied for the grant from American Association of University Women (AAUW) Rock Hill chapter. 

“I was shocked and thrilled to know that I had won the grant, and I appreciate that organizations like AAUW care about the STEAM fields,” she said. 

Funds will be used to purchase new technology equipment and to provide scholarships for future STEAM camps. STEAM camps are a collection of in-person summer camp programs that focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math. This past summer, the ITC offered two STEAM camps: (1) an Introduction to Coding course for third- through sixth-graders; and (2) a Video Game Designer course for sixth- through ninth-graders. 

“I believe STEAM-related camps are so important because they allow students to utilize the Four Cs: critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity,” Corley-Moore explained. “Students are able to use a hands-on approach while connecting their learning to real-world experiences. Our STEAM camp provides students with an opportunity to build confidence and resiliency.”

This semester, the ITC will host professional development opportunities for educators, specifically on new technologies that can be integrated into their classrooms, via The Rex Institute.
