Summer Camp Mission

 

 

Summer camp program provides an opportunity for middle and high school students to explore science and technology disciplines based on challenging and real-world problem solving, and to apply the state-of-the-art technology to understand scientific concepts in solving real world problems.

Our summer programs are designed to introduce students to technology-based problem-solving techniques through hands-on computer laboratory experience, lectures, field visits and group presentations. Past year program topics focused on the environmental problems such as water quality, smart growth of urban cities, animal biodiversity in our area, scientific decision on where to locate monitoring stations, etc. Please click the following links for detail.
