My daughters attended the SEMAA, (Science, Engineering, Mathematics Aerospace Academy) summer camp this past week and loved it. This camp is sponsored by NASA. The kids are able to performed science experiments, study our solar system and even ecosystems all on a college campus. I just received an email from the Director, Lori Scott about another FREE two week summer camp! So I wanted to put it out there for you fellow parents to take advantage of.
It is only for children entering grades 4-9 in the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. It is call the Summer of Innovation.
Summer of Innovation focuses on middle school scholars (children entering grades 4 – 9 in fall 2013) with a vision of advancing excellence in summer and extended learning for underrepresented and underserved students to inspire them toward future STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) pursuits. The program is open enrollment and applications are accepted on a first come first served basis. The application deadline has been extended to Thursday July 18th, 2013.
Last year, Cleveland SEMAA sponsored Summer of Innovation (SOL), an epic summer experience for rising 4th through 9th grade scholars at Tri-C’s Metro Campus! We’re delighted to share the program will be hosted again this year, Monday, August 5th – Friday, August 16th, 2013! The session will offer scholars a chance to participate in 30 hours or NASA developed content for ½ day, either, 9:00AM – noon, or, 1:00PM – 4:00PM over two weeks! Check out the program on the NASA homepage at:http://www.nasa.gov/offices/education/programs/national/summer/home/index.html
So below here is some information about the program and I tried adding the applications so you could access them directly from this site, but I was unsuccessful. If you are interested in having your child participate in this FREE summer camp, contact Lori Scott at:
