Join us for our weeklong camps virtually-designed for 6th — 8th graders! Weekly topics will explore engineering, marine sciences, technology, and more, with hands-on activities, special experiences such as guided virtual museum tours, virtual meet the scientist sessions, virtual lab tours and educational videos throughout the week.
You can choose from two daily camp session blocks: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Meet the Scientist session times may vary each week. To learn more about all our Summer Camp themes and virtual sessions visit our Summer Camp page.
Camp sessions are designed to be two weeks long for a deeper dive into the science of the given topic. However, registration is designed to be flexible, so you can book one week at a time as fits with your schedule. Please note, you will need to book each week of a session topic separately.
Plug in to the innovations and designs powering a revolution of environmental science and resource management as scientists investigate the natural world with cutting-edge technology! Campers will plan and construct a model of a sustainable home to see firsthand how green infrastructure can reduce water and energy usage, build a hydroponic herb farm and explore the science behind photovoltaic technology by experimenting with circuits.
Then campers will continue their immersion in environmental tech by getting a first-hand look at revolutionary scientific work, from the employment of mechanical engineering principles that help keep pollution out of drinking water to the replication of oceanic conditions through a behind-the-scenes look into the technology for aquatic life support systems.
They will use this knowledge to work together on brainstorming new technologies that can aid various environmental initiatives and then present their ideas during a technology showcase!
