Nature's Engineers

Bridgewater State University’s Center for the Advancement of STEM Education (CASE) in collaboration with the Elementary & Early Childhood Education Department are pleased to have received funding through the Paula Shea Children’s Endowment to offer an April-break Science Academy free for 4th and 5th grade students from Bridgewater or Raynham schools.  We have seats available, and have opened the program to all local 4th and 5th grade students. 


Did you know that everything in nature has been specifically designed? We can learn a lot from closely examining the time-tested patterns, features, and strategies of the living organisms around us. In this course, you will become one of Nature’s Engineers by observing these elements of nature and using them to design products and processes useful for people.

Please note, each session has a maximum of 16 students.

Note that a refundable $25 deposit is required at the time of registration. This deposit will be refunded on the last day should your child attend all four days of the program.
