When you enroll your child to Science Academy, students have the opportunity to experience the district, campus and the culture before starting classes in the fall by attending up to three summer camps hosted by the campus. This allows students to prepare for their journey with us, explore programs, meet new people and experience the Science Academy community first-hand.
The summer camps will provide students with different path finding strategies to learn creatively utilizing STEM/STEAM supported themes. We hope to show students that thinking can be creative, multifaceted and inclusive with diversity in thought.
Each camp will support a single path related to STEM/STEAM. These paths are Engineering, Science and Technology/Arts (TechnicalArts). The underlying theme of Math will be prevalent in each path.Innovative activities will be developed to fully realize the intersections between the arts, engineering, mathematics, science and technology, and the influence they have on each other.
Engineering Path Finder Camp: June 8-10
This camp will focus on the STEM pathway of Engineering. Innovative activities may include, but are not limited to the following: exploring solar heat, building simple circuits, engineering and physics challenges with an obstacle course, wind power, bridge building, structure design, water wheel and bottle rockets.
Science Path Finder Camp: June 29-July 1
This camp will focus on the STEM pathway of Science. Innovative activities may include, but are not limited to the following: play and freeze ice cream, oxidizing metals, tie dye experiments, homemade slime, experimenting with the senses, magnetic attraction, bubbling experiments, pop rocks, and exploding volcano.
Technical Arts Path Finder Camp: July 20-22
This camp will focus on the STEM pathway of Technology/Arts. Innovative activities may include, but are not limited to the following: coding wars, mobile applications, robotics, data/statistical analysis, cybersecurity, sand candles, rain sticks, wind chimes and sand-cashing with plaster.
