Event Details

5/13 - Hands-on Science in the Summer Camp Setting

In this workshop, participants will explore how to integrate science education into their summer programs. Designed for those working with upper elementary and middle school age youth, participants will learn about and practice fun, hands-on science activities that enable staff to bring science to life and promote scientific inquiry with youth. This session will use the topic of bridge engineering to explore the built environment.  From a fifty-foot human suspension bridge to building and testing models, this session equips educators with the confidence and content to "do" engineering with their youth.  Facilitated discussion and activities will illustrate how science enrichment can fit multiple summer camp themes and projects.
