This summer, Team SWAG 4060 hosted an incredibly successful week-long Summer STEM Academy. SWAG team members planned, prepared, and ran this camp from start to finish. They mentored students during the week, helping nearly a hundred students from across Southwest Washington learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This year's theme was "Drone Zone!"

One of the coolest pieces of technology at STEM Academy was the Parrot Bebop Drone. Thanks to our team's generous sponsors, SWAG was able to purchase about 20 of these high-tech unmanned aerial vehicles. Team members taught camp attendees how to operate them. To challenge their skills, campers had to navigate their drones through an obstacle course. 
By the end of the week, many students were experts! 

Students also explored the fundamentals of robotics through constructing and programming LEGO Mindstorms robots. Mentors from Team SWAG helped students master the basics of programming and operation of these easy, but exciting, robots. Campers used the light detection technology in their LEGO Mindstorms bots to navigate an maze. By the end of STEM Academy, campers designed and programmed amazing robots that entered the ring in SumoBot competition!

The camp also featured many other aspects of STEM. Guest speaker Jeff Evans showed campers some amazing ways that science can be used through an entertaining and educational magic show! Every camper also spent a full day on the Centralia College campus exploring biology, chemistry, physics, and other exciting STEM fields. STEM Academy also had an amazing full day field trip hosted by Boeing's Future of Flight Foundation. Through numerous enriching activities, Team SWAG's STEM Academy helped campers experience science in amazing new ways.

As a communication student, social media is one broad topic for scholarly discussion. It attempts to study the degrees of familiarity with different people. It's a type of language on its own but it is has one aspect--technology that allows people limited access to express their true selves--contradicting those who say that can express better. Improving the lives of students through science and personal interaction leads on better dynamics in the work force in the future.

It really is amazing how people tend to engage in camps where they would most probably learn about something. I really get inspired from people who tend to organize or sponsor such events. It really is much more suitable to put up an event, where many children will benefit from it, and is going to be of great help for their future. This year's theme also really is very amazing, because I really believe that it is going to be of great benefit to them, knowing that our generation now is in the process of upgrading technologies or the so called "Technological age". I encourage more group of people to put up summer camps, to be able to help out many children that are in need of it.

I had a summer class last year. I enrolled my major subjects. It was a stunning experience. I met my new classmates. The professors were great teaching. I adore their way of teaching. My classmates were planning to go out of town. They want to go out for a picnic. There is a swimming pool everywhere. It was a great event.

Having talking parrots as pets goes way back to at least the time of Ancient Greeks. By the time of the Roman Empire it was even more common and courses were given to teach people how to get their birds to mimic human speech.
