SPICE provides three progressive summer science camps every June. Rising 6th graders enter the program by participating in the science discovery camp. They return as rising 7th graders to solve mysteries in the forensic investigation camp and finish the series as rising 8th graders with our engineering and computer science camp. Once accepted, participants are guaranteed a spot in all future camps and activities. Spots are available in all three camps.
More than Meets the Eye: Science Discovery Rising 6th Graders Calculate the speed of light while making a yummy snack in “S’Mores at the Speed of Light” and then navigate your way through the science scavenger hunt. Learn about the scientific method with paper airplanes and plumb the depths of the mystery box.
Whodunit? Forensic Investigation
