Spring Break can be tricky. It’s not like Winter Break where you can count on everyone to be out of school on the same days. In the Chicago area, Spring Break can mean any time from mid-March through late April. But whenever your child’s Spring Break is, we’ve got you covered thanks to this year’s sponsor, Codeverse. And whether your STEM kid wants to learn coding or chemistry in Chicago, web development in Wilmette, or digital design in Deerfield, there are STEM and STEAM camp options to keep your kids busy and their minds active over while school is out. We’ve partnered with Chicago’s STEM and STEAM leaders to bring you this guide.
