ABOUT THE EVENT /
We invite you to join us for our 10th Annual Science In The City Summer Camp. This camp is an opportunity to give underrepresented students of color (African American/Black, Chicano/Latino/LatinX, Indigenous/Native American, and Pacific Islander) access to traditional STEM at an early age. This camp is offered through a collaboration between Stanford's Graduate School of Education, Stanford's SLAC National Laboratory, and The Social Engineering Project, Inc.
The Social Engineering Project, Inc. ("TSEP") is an Oakland based, social impact venture with Stanford University designed to address the lack of diversity in the tech industry through culturally relevant STEM pipeline programs for underrepresented students of color. TSEP seeks to impact the world by making students fall in love with science. This camp is designed for incoming 5th and 6th graders students only. During our one week session, students will learn Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering. Science In The City requires young people to think hard, ask questions, and to generate powerful explanations about science. The power of getting young people involved in science and allowing them to experience success at an early age removes any doubt that science is for our children.
Some highlights to this year's curriculum:
Interviewing knowledgeable scientists on the fascinating projects that they are working on;
Astronomy, building bridges, light, diffraction, the health effects of COVID-19 on the human lung, and the potential/kinetic energy in roller coasters;
How science, chemistry, and physics impact the students in their daily lives and why mastering this knowledge is important; and
The importance of personal branding, working in groups, networking, and how they can leverage their networks in the future.
Please consider joining us for this year's camp. Check out a previous year's coverage on KTVU Channel 2. Spaces are limited, so sign up today! Please write good essays and fill out the application thoroughly. This year's camp enrollment will be competitive.
