SCIENCE EXPLORATION CAMP

SCIENCE EXPLORATION CAMP

 
General Information
Description of ServiceOffers summer academic programs for middle school students which will complement the students' science curriculum at school and challenge them to think, research and experiment. Each program will be laboratory- based, but will involve reading, computer searching, writing and group work. Students participating in these programs should be interested in science, inquisitive, and willing to work hard to learn something new! Students entering 6th grade will be given opportunities to use their imagination and creativity while actively engaged in science and engineering practices. They will be guided through a variety of hands-on science investigations that include designing, constructing, testing, and modifying ideas. We will use the scientific method as we explore the various areas of science such as biology, chemistry, and physics. Students entering 7th grade will focus on developing laboratory skills. The students will be guided through several scientific explorations in physics, chemistry, microbiology and ecology. Students entering 8th grade will explore biology, chemistry, biotechnology, and environmental chemistry in the context of case studies of Cholera, Bioremediation, Genetics, and daily interactive demonstrations. The overarching theme of the camp will highlight homeostasis and the environment. These experiences will introduce and reinforce skills and concepts that will better prepare participants for high school science coursework. Students entering 9th grade will concentrate on biology and developing research skills. The students will work in groups to explore botany, microbiology, genetics and molecular biology. These students will develop their problem-solving skills by working through instructions independently. They will develop and test hypotheses and report their conclusions to the group.
