While LACC plans for the STEAM Summer Camp to be fun and engaging, it also serves to reduce impacts of Summer Learning Loss prevalent in our community. LACC's STEAM Summer Camp curriculum developer, Carlos J. Pasiche, M.S., is currently enrolled as a Biology Ph.D. student at University of Manitoba in Canada. Mr. Pasiche says, "Our team will make sure the kids stay on track for the fall by learning and reading about biology. This will be done by experiencing biology in different and unique ways where they will want to continue learning. Imagine a kid learning through a snake or turtle dissection, knowing where vanilla comes from and how it really tastes, eating crickets and pickled fiddlehead fern, extracting DNA, as well as using a microscope to see small animals and plants living in a pond. They will learn and read for sure, since that is our goal, but will have fun while doing so."For more info on LACC's STEAM Summer Camp, please contact Carlos J. Pasiche, M.S..
