Project Scientist has a fun-filled program for your daughter this summer. Over the course of six weeks, girls ages 4-12 will participate in fun-filled experiments, exciting field trips to top science and technology companies, and interactive seminars with women thriving in the STEM field. They will learn about the science of crime, transportation, DNA, and more!
All Aboard! Transportation: Past, Present and Future – No matter the destination, we’ll tinker with different transit vehicles to get you there by air, space, road, water, and more! We’ll learn how transportation systems work together to keep us moving and tinker with tried and true vehicles to create new platforms for efficient mobility.
Coding & Gaming – Computer programming code runs the world. We’ll learn basic and advanced techniques for creating code for computers, video games and more using interactive platforms such as Roblox.
Genetics, DNA, and Dissection – What does a brain really look like? How does the circulatory system work? What determines eye color? We’ll spend the week dissecting and analyzing what makes each of us unique. We will study Gregor Mendel and his peas, Punnett squares/pedigrees and DNA all week long. Campers should feel comfortable with age appropriate dissections to attend this camp.
How It’s Made – Let’s get our hands dirty as we uncover how things are made! We’ll take apart and breakdown well-known and beloved items and gain appreciation for the processes and people who make them.
Robotics & AI – Join us as we dive into the world of AI through robotics. We’ll use various platforms to build models, use sensors and motors and configure behaviors to design our own robots. As our robots come to life, we’ll test our models with challenges fostering creativity and innovation.
Science of Crime – Real Life and Online – Become a forensics expert by solving both in person and online crimes through analyzing evidence. Digital crime is on the rise and we’ll learn how to protect ourselves and others through cybersecurity.
