Summer Fun (learning, too)
The Center for the Advancement of STEM Education at Bridgewater State University (CASE) offers a new hands-on science academy focused on biotechnology, environmental biology and physics.
The Summer Science Academy offers one-week classes for middle school students entering grades 6-9 in the fall. This unique program allows participants to work as scientists and is designed to inspire students about science while providing them with the foundations necessary for further exploration. The students are immersed in science courses, conduct hands-on investigations, and participate in extracurricular science activities. They also focus on the importance of science communication as they lead presentations on the last day of class.
The academy runs throughout July, and features the following courses: Whale of a Mystery, x-STREAM Adventures, Fornesics Institute of Bridgewater and Up in the Air: The Physics of Flight.
Spend some time with the participants of the x-STREAM program by watching this video. (Video shot by students Nicholas Allende and Brian Zayas, edited by Nicholas Allende, University News)
