WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. – Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Center for Integrative Science Learning will present special summer programs for grades 1-12 at the University’s main campus. The Summer Camp and Science Institute will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in two one-week sessions: June 5 through 9 and June 12 through 16.
Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Center for Integrative Science Learning will host Summer Camp and
Institute for grades 1-12 the weeks of June 5 through 9 and June 12 through 16. Last year, campers
performed daily laboratory experiments led by PBA faculty.
Science Summer Camp serves students entering grades one through five and the Summer Science Institute serves middle and high school students. Both camps will perform daily laboratory experiments led by PBA faculty. The first week all age groups will focus on activities that relate to different aspects of agriculture and the second week campers will explore forensics and how scientists use clues to solve a mystery.
The objective of this program is to increase students’ enthusiasm toward science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) learning, said Dr. Mireille Aleman, associate professor of chemistry and director of Summer Camp and Science Institute at PBA.
“We want them to realize that science is a fun and approachable subject with constant applications in their daily lives,” she said.
Recreation time in PBA’s Greene Complex for Sports and Recreation will be part of the daily activities for the elementary-age children. The cost per child for the elementary camp is $175 per week, with extended care available from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at an additional cost of $15 per child per day. For incoming sixth-through 12th-graders, the cost per student is $250.
