Field trips, outdoor activities and hands-on learning will highlight the Science Education Discovery Summer Camp being offered in July by faculty and students in the College of Education's Department of Curriculum and Teaching.
The camp, open to children in grades 6-8, will offer sessions from July 16-20 and July 23-27. The camp sessions will last from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
The Science Education Discovery Summer Camp incorporates different themes for each session. The first camp session is entitled “Sweet Home Alabama,” while the second is “The Mad Scientist.”
The camp registration fee is $120 for one week or $200 for two weeks. Parents may register multiple children for $100 per week. A non-refundable $50 registration fee will be due on June 30 for each week.
Children will receive a T-shirt, snacks, water and juice, and a camp water bottle. In addition to participating in inquiry-based science activities aligned with the Alabama Course of Study Objectives for grades 6-8, campers will also be able to take field trips to the Forest Ecology Preserve and/or the Auburn University Arboretum.
Campers will receive personalized instruction from College of Education faculty and students since sessions are limited to 20 participants. Camp sessions will be hosted in the Scholarship Room of Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Parents will be asked to bring their children to the Arboretum and/or the Forest Ecology Preserve for field trips scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
