Children with cancer often miss long periods of school, thereby falling behind their peers.
The S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) program offers campers the chance to learn valuable skills that can translate to future career opportunities, particularly for kids with restricted mobility and physical limitations.
The Laura Rosenberg S.T.E.A.M. Shack initiative was launched by sixteen-year-old self-proclaimed computer geek, Max Miller. Max volunteered as a counselor & immediately connected with one of the campers, a 9-year-old cancer patient, who shared his interest in cars, pop culture and technology. Max mentioned to him that he is the co-captain and manager of his high school robotics team, built his own computer and can write 13 coding languages. The camper told Max that he would like to learn to write code, and wished that the camp had a tech center.
