Abstract: The McQuown Scholars education outreach program at Yerkes Observatory creates STEAM leaders by including students in the design of summer Technology Camps for younger students. Older students focus on a common goal to brainstorm activities, build and test prototypes, and mentor campers as they cooperate to learn technology and leadership skills. Camp students experience unique student-tested STEAM enrichment with student role models who help guide their future as STEAM leaders. We would like to share what we have learned in creating this synergistic learning culture.
