Virtual STEM Camps

Connect to Ireland’s online STEM Community

TWC Virtual is our new online home where our STEM community can come together. It is made up of the ‘Nucleus’ (the learning hub) and several unique team channels where Alphas engage is STEM sessions facilitated by Trinity’s undergraduate and postgraduate community.

At TWC camps, Alphas partake in live, interactive physics, math, technology and engineering sessions, which take place either mornings or afternoons Monday-Friday. These camps are designed to fun and challenging bite sized experiences that nurture the learners STEM interests and give them a taster of the Trinity Walton Club Online and Saturday experience.

Easter and Summer Holidays Camps for 2022 will be announced in due course, offerings provided in 2021 can be seen below.

LAUNCH

On this camp, alphas will build their own catapults – in the kitchen AND on the computer. We will use digital software to track and model our projectiles, and end the week developing and pitching our own ideas for a launch game

PERSEVERANCE

This camp is based around the Mars Rover Perseverance. We will go on a virtual journey to Mars as we learn about the mission, the technology that allows interspace communication and experience the interconnectedness of STEM.

CURRENTS OF CHANGE

We will uncover the Physics of Climate Change as we evaluate electrical energy sources, resources, power, uses and abuses. We will calculate the cost of consumerism and develop our own ideas for “going green.”

Student Testimonial 
‘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.’
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.
