BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-A Birmingham-based business owner has been helping students in the Inglenook community develop and explore their passion for science, technology, reading engineering, arts and math this summer. 

Dr. Adrienne Starks, founder of STREAM Innovations, has been hosting a free coding camp since June 10 at Inglenook Library, Inglenook K-8 School and Inglenook Recreation Center. STREAM stands for Science, Technology, Reading Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.

Stark’s STREAM Coding Camp consists of three components: a six-week, weekday coding boot camp (7th, 8th graders) at the Inglenook K-8 School, Saturday sessions at the Inglenook Recreation Center offering hands-on programs across all STREAM disciplines (3rd-6th graders), and a weekly (Thursdays) experiment conducted at the Inglenook Library that will provide students with the materials needed to conduct the experiment themselves at home. 

Camp participants will conduct science experiment demonstrations taught by Dr. Starks at Inglenook Branch Library, 4100 40th Terrace North, on Thursdays at 3 p.m. on July 13, July 20 and July 27 followed by a graduation ceremony on Aug. 3, said Inglenook Branch Manager Karnecia Williams.
