Wilo-Foundation sponsors Thomas University’s Camp STEMtastic
Wilo sponsored Thomas Univeristy’s Camp STEMtastic through its Wilo-Foundation. The camp is the university’s science and technology-focused summer program for eighth-grade students. The foundation has been an active sponsor since 2015.

The theme for this year’s camp was “The Human Machine,” and campers’ activities and learning experiences throughout the week focused on simple and complex machines related to how the systems in the human body function together to complete specific tasks. The students toured the Wilo USA facility on the fourth day of the camp and learned how Wilo pumps work to treat water supply and sewage within cities’ infrastructure. The campers also participated in a hands-on activity led by Wilo USA Director of Operations Darren McGuire in which they worked in teams to assemble two versions of a simple circulation system. They then used a Wilo circulator to pump dyed water through the piping structures they created, demonstrating how the human circulatory system functions.
