Students who think they are training for the zombie apocalypse are really honing their STEM skills in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The camp is at the Midwest Center For Public Safety Training in Davenport. This week students are learning how to navigate, purify water and start a fire but it's all under the guise of how to survive the zombie apocalypse.

"We really view this as an excellent way for students to be prepared and start thinking about some of the things they'd like to do in the future and if this doesn't directly apply to something in college it is selfresponsibilityy and self-survival if there's anything type of incident that occurs," Eastern Iowa Community College's Ellen Kabat Lensch said.

The zombies will come in at the end of the week to help test the campers on the skills they have learned.
