The camp is run by a non-profit organization that allows their summer camps to be hosted in different schools around the United States. The focus of this camp is to enrich the students with science, technology, engineering, and math. All of the activities that the students work on during the camp are explored via hands-on, creative problem solving modules.

The camp allows the students to express their thoughts through inventing and creating different projects. The students will be able to collaborate on each project with other students in the program.
