Jackson County - Summer STEAM Camps

Summer STEAM Camps are an excellent opportunity for students to engage in activities promoting science, math, engineering, art and computer science.  These experiences are sure to intrigue students to participate in other STEAM workshops, high school classes, and ultimately pursuing a career in one of many STEAM-related fields.

Rogue Community College is excited to partner with Talent Maker City and Phoenix-Talent School District to provide funding to help make STEAM summer camps possible in Jackson County.
