SMARTWylie stands for Science, Math, Aerospace, Robotics and Technology. So in other words: STEM! We are part of the Wylie Independent School District.
Our goal is to get kids in interested in taking advanced math and science in high school and in choosing STEM careers. Our primary focus right now is girls, but we offer many opportunities for boys as well!
Due to the current transition as we safely reopen, we will NOT be offering our TechTitan's STEM camp or our Pre-Biology Camps. We have been given the approval to offer our Robotics Camp and our STEM Xtreme Camp. In offering these camps, we will implement the following safety protocols:
-Limit camp to 20 attendees divided into smaller groups
-Practice social distancing and personal hygiene
-Temperatures taken of staff and campers each day
-Masks worn by staff and campers (one provided each day if needed)
-Individual hand sanitizer provided for each camper with reminders to use during camp
-Hand sanitizer in all classrooms used during camp
-Water bottles given to campers in place of using the water fountain
-Classroom tables/computers/etc. sanitized before and after each group
SMARTgirls Clubs are based in Wylie Independent School District and focus on getting girls 5th-8th interested and staying interested in Science and Math. Our clubs are offered during the year at all intermediate and junior high schools in the district...
GEARSforGUYS was introduced to engage boys 5th-8th grade in science and STEM as well. We are pleased to offer summer camps for middle grade boys...
SMARTkids is designed to introduce our elementary kids to both STEM topics and careers. SMARTkids is open to all Wylie ISD 3rd and 4th grade girls AND boys...
Our SMARTleaders are girls (and guys!) who have been through our programs before and want to lead and teach others. Is your SMARTgirl or GUY interested in being on the team?
