The SEEK Camp engaged third through fifth grade students in daily hands-on learning and rigorous lessons to help sharpen mathematics and science skills in connection with engineering concepts. Students participated in competitions during the camp and took part in an awards ceremony each Friday to showcase their work.
Dedicated college engineering and/or mathematics students from various universities served as mentors and provided daily instruction based on the A World in Motion (AWIM) curriculum.
The SEEK Camp serviced 299 students—255 DPS students and 44 from other public, charter, and private schools. A total of 26 Detroit Public Schools were represented during the camp including: Academy of the Americas, Ann Arbor Trail, Bagley, Bates, Bethune, Bow, Ronald Brown, Burton, Chrysler, Dixon, FLICS, Golightly, Gompers, JR King, Ludington, MacDowell, Marquette, Murphy, Noble, Oakman, Pasteur, Robeson-Malcolm X, Schulze, Brenda Scott, Thirkell, and Charles Wright.
This was the first time in the program’s history that the SEEK Camp was offered in Detroit.
