Summer Science Academy for Students Entering Grades 6-12
The Summer Science Academy offers one-week science classes for students entering grades 6-12 in the fall of 2017. This unique program allows students to work as scientists and is designed to inspire students about science while providing them with the foundations necessary for further scientific exploration.
Summer Science Academy students are immersed in science courses and conduct hands-on investigations in their selected class. Students in classes for grades 6-8 will also participate in extracurricular science activities. All classes focus on the importance of science communication as students lead presentations on the last day of class.
