For Stem Campers
Engage in Hands On Technology Programs Offered by Shooting Stars
Everything we do centers around serving and inspiring under-served students in STEM. One of our goals is to increase access to technology programs by hosting STEM programs for all age groups, virtually and in-person in the US and globally.
Hackathons are social coding events where people with interest in STEM congregate and develop a novel and technical project or program. Hackathons usually range from 12-24 hours long.
Shooting Stars hosts hackathons in partnership with corporates like IBM, Amgen, Netscout etc.
Project guidance and mentorship from corporate employees
Exciting technology and monetary prizes
“The hackathon was great! My team worked very hard to write a 15-page code and we made great friendships with each other. Our hard work paid off and we won! I can’t wait to do any other hackathon with Shooting Stars!”
Our K-8 camps offer experiences in a wealth of different areas from speech and debate to arts and crafts to coding and web design. Each camp is hosted by qualified high school student officers with years of experience in the subject.
