Throughout 2022, Trinity Walton Club will deliver a range of camps that immerse STEM curious teens into fun and interactive physics, math, technology and engineering sessions. Each camp is designed to challenge learners to work collaboratively with peers, think creatively and create solutions, while enhancing their STEM knowledge, skills and curiosity.
Depending on the learner's preference and location, camps will be delivered both online, through our virtual learning hub and on campus at Trinity College Dublin.
As a member of the Trinity Walton Club community, you are sure to grow your curiosity, make lasting STEM connections and build a standout STEM portfolio.

Throughout June and July, Trinity College Dublin STEM faculty will be buzzing with teens taking part in face-to-face sessions, 'hands-on minds-on' learning and on campus exploration and fun.
Why are some things made of steel and others made of plastic? What even is 'plastic'? Campers will explore the unique properties of everyday materials and investigate why each offers unique advantages over the other.
13 – 17 June, 9:30 – 1:30
4 – 8 July, 12:30 – 4:30
Ever wondered how computers 'see'? That's the challenge of this hands-on electronics and programming camp where each team will build their own autonomous buggy to navigate and race an obstacle course.
13 – 17 June, 12:30 – 4:30
4 – 8 July , 9:30 – 1:30
What is happening today to save our planet? Campers will unravel the STEM behind cutting edge and sustainable living solutions.
20 – 24 June, 9:30 – 1:30
11 – 15 July, 12:30 – 4:30
What does it take to launch a rocket into space? If we relocated to Mars, what would it take for humankind to survive? Campers will investigate the STEM required to answer these questions

* As a discerning student, parent, teacher, you can be assured that keeping everyone safe is a top priority for us. While on campus we will be following all HSE and TCD Covid protocols. Should you wish to know about our specific practices, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Let’s go on a virtual journey to Mars! On this camp we’ll learn about the science of spaceflight, the mathematics that describes the movements of planetary bodies and the technology that allows interspace communication. This camp will highlight the interconnectedness of STEM disciplines.
27 – 30 June, 17:00 – 19:00
Ready, Aim, Fire, Catch! On this camp, we'll combine Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to build catapults, predict where the projectile will land, and construct some Arduino robots to catch it before it hits the ground.
Where do ideas come from? On this camp, we'll develop your STEM skills and use User Centered Design and Design Thinking processes to experience how scientists and engineers build solutions to problems.
€155 per student, per 5-day camp
The whole Walton Camp was a great experience! I enjoyed each section of the course and learnt a lot. The instructors were very good at explaining things’ It surpassed my expectations. It made me look at all the subjects in a different light and realised that the four subject all tie in together.
I thought the camp was extremely enjoyable, I enjoyed working in teams and being around people interested in STEM I also enjoyed learning things outside of the classroom and how STEM applies in everyday life – I will definitely be returning.
‘I believe the best experience I had with this virtual camp was getting to meet other people and talking with them, knowing they have the same interest in STEM like me.
