REGISTER NOW

The Ultimate Educational Experience Combining Real-World Applications of STEM

Register by May 19th for a $50 discount and a guaranteed mini-satellite for summer camp. Don’t miss out on this opportunity. Supplies are limited to 38 satellites. Use code scitechlaunch when you register for camp.

Summer is an excellent time for kids to explore the world of ST[E]AM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). At SciTech Kids, campers do hands-on science investigations, observations, and explorations. Older campers explore STEAM as they become lab scientists, fishing and kayaking experts or design pinball machines. Young ones become marine scientist, botanists and explore space. Additionally, campers explore a range of STEM-based topics such as coding, architecture, science or engineering each week. The best part: campers get to take their projects home.

New!

SciTech Kids Summer Camp is better than ever! We are heading to space! Once again, we are launching mini satellites filled with students’ projects to see what happens to them when they return. We have also partnered with NASA and other organizations to enter STEM contests. We’re always looking ways for kids to create real applications of STEM.

Fun Academics

We’ve also added 30 minutes to our camp hours to included an academic session either of math, science or reading to address the learning gap due to COVID-19.

MASTERCLASSES

SciTech Kids is offering Masterclasses which were a hit last year! This isn’t your regular science class. It’s a fun mix of interactive live instruction mixed with a one-hour, hands-on virtual lab that brings science to life. Taught by our elite instructors, students learn the fundamentals of one semester of science in one week! This program is geared for students who want more challenging but engaging academic enrichment, want to be advanced in the fall or simply want to learn science concepts in a fun, creative way. They will understand these disciplines as they’ve never done before. Rote memorization is replaced with a real understanding of the subject.

Each week, the topic also shows how emerging technologies, such as AI, are changing the field of science. Students will also study stocks related to the emerging fields tied to the science course of the week and receive virtual cash to trade stocks in order to boost their math and tech skills.

Your child will explore the secrets of life through the foundational concepts of biology, chemistry and physics with the added benefit of being exposed to the future of STEM.

VIRTUAL LAB

Masterclasses include a realistic virtual lab experience that makes science come to life as they perform experiments in a fun and risk-free learning environment. The virtual lab uses gamification and storytelling approaches to engage students in course materials. Our seasoned master instructors can track a student’s progress based on the quizzes embedded in each lab activity.

SCIENCE MASTERCLASSES (AGES 11-17) 9:30 am – 1:30 pm

  • iNTRODUCTORY BIOLOGY WITH VIRTUAL LAB
  • THE HUMAN BODY WITH VIRTUAL LAB
  • INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY WITH VIRTUAL LAB
  • CHEMISTRY PART II WITH VIRTUAL LAB
  • INTRODUCTORY PHYSICS WITH VIRTUAL LAB

*The Science Masterclass is normally $1500 but is discounted for Summer 2022: ONLY $1,050.

OUR STAFF

Our trained instructors consist of scientists, engineers, and designers who enjoy sharing their expertise with young minds. The teacher student ratio is 6:1.
