"The idea to create and launch Heritage STEM Camps Foundation (HSCF) was simple; I wanted to touch as many aspiring young leaders around the world providing access to a holistic educational business-STEM experiences for those who yearn for more and want to learn in a diverse environment. They will benefit greatly by attending any of HSCF's programs and will leave with life-long friends, an unforgettable STEM experience while becoming more equipped to thrive in the 21-century with confidence."
Tina L. Taylor - HSCF Founder
Heritage STEM Camps Foundation was founded in 2016 to bring a unique, immersive, fun experience of academic enrichment, self-growth, and leadership development to students. Our creative multi-disciplinary programming is designed to inspire students to learn and construct innovative solutions using Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) principles, including the intersection of art/music with engineering and technology.
We curate a holistic informal framework called the Taylor Educational Framework (T.E.F.) using three core pillars to infuse a more comprehensive understanding of STEM. This awareness will last long after our campers go home. Our STEM camp's philosophy focuses on hands-on experiments, interactions with industry experts, and honing leadership skills & self-discovery while forging life-lasting relationships.
Our campers engage with challenges that encourage critical thinking skills and collaboration. Our saying "STEM at Work" in conjunction with the support and guidance from industry thought-leaders teaches vital life skills and creates an environment that fosters a continued passion for learning. Through daily activities, campers will learn ways STEM fields are utilized to address many global challenges.
LEADERSHIP IN PRACTICE
Campers will learn how to tap into their natural talents and develop their strengths through a series of interactive sessions allowing them to discover and reflect on their leadership style. As a result, campers are able to begin crafting a future where their talents and strengths align with their passions. Collaboration and leadership are crucial components to team building in STEM career fields.
FUN THROUGH DISCOVERY
Discovery is experienced in many different yet exciting ways during camp. A primary part of STEM is the ability to make discoveries by being immersed in nature, while having fun and building lasting partnerships with like-minded peers from around the globe. This gives campers the opportunity to explore STEM outside of the classroom. Explore, discover, and create a fulfilling experience at HSCF!
