Physical Sciences Overview

The World of Water: How Do We Fit? (Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering) – A multi-disciplinary approach to problem-solving is key for future development in a highly-specified world. Rather than just exposing students to knowledge as rigidly divided subjects, it is crucial to enhance their understanding of how to approach a subject matter from many different directions. In this light, we are planning a one-week camp for middle school students, exploring the subject of water from the perspective of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, mathematics, and other important disciplines.

The workshop will run from 9am to 5pm Monday-Friday, and will concentrate on short-term instructions followed by fun hands-on activities and experiments. Please note that students will be working together in small groups throughout the week. They will also complete a team project, which will be presented at the end of the week. Applicants must display an interest in the physical sciences.

Program Dates: Monday to Friday, July 23 – July 27

Program Cost: $400 (includes lunch)

Who can apply? Rising 6th-8th graders

When can I apply? Applications open in February 2018
