Notice: Unfortunately the 2022 PBL camp will not be held. We look forward to hosting this camp in 2023.

This camp has problems... and we need you to solve them!

GearHeads San Antonio is a free 2-week problem/project based learning summer STEAM camp, including the Arts as it applies to STEM, for middle school students from across the greater San Antonio area.

Every camp and every project

  • is unique, collaborative and competitive
  • takes a multidisciplinary approach to develop creative problem-solving skills
  • fosters a love of learning and all things STEM through exciting, hands-on activities
  • could potentially devise solutions to the problem(s) of each camp's focus

Each camp is also designed to be mindful of action plans from the local level, such as San Antonio's Climate Ready Plan, which is part of a commitment by over 400 U.S. cities to uphold the goals of the Paris Climate Accord to the global level. The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Blueprint seeks "to address the global challenges we face, includes those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice."
