ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One Dougherty County science teacher is training students through her non-profit to be young scientists over their summer break. 

"Brainaics 21st Century Learning" kicked off its first Brainaics STEM Academy this week. 

The six-week program will teach kids engineering, coding, science experiments and more. 

Organizers said the camp was established due to the big push for STEM education in the Dougherty County School System. 

"Dougherty County is moving towards becoming a STEM-based district and so to make the transition smooth, we wanted to start our own STEM-based enrichment camp where students perform science experiments. They are going to be working with technology as far as coding," said Brainaics 21st Century Learning  Owner Yineka Jefferson. 

Students will also learn math and reading to improve overall literacy. 

Organizers said they are still accepting students for the camp on location at the First Mt. Olive Educational Complex.
