Coed Science Camps

Our overnight science camps offer risign 4th-10th graders with a passion for science the opportunity to live, learn and make lifelong friends on the campuses of UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, UCLA, Georgetown and Stanford.  These programs feature a 6 day, 5 night schedule, with activities scheduled from approximately 9am to 5pm each day. Students participate in morning labs, tailored to a science major of their choice, afternoon enrichment activities for informal science learning and recreation, and a wide variety of evening activities and games. 

Offered at camps for 5th - 8th grade

  • Marine Biology: Students will investigate animal adaptations in a creative creature project, explore marine phyla, dissect a fish, and create an “oil spill” to see how human actions impact the planet.
  • Astronomy: Students will simulate the big bang theory, study the surface of the sun and measure its diameter, explore light diffraction and build their own water rockets!
Offered at camps for 8th - 10th Grade 
  • Neuroanatomy: In this major, you will learn the anatomy and physiology of various systems in the brain and apply what you know to fictitious neurological patients. Specifically, we will focus on the cerebral cortex, various sub-cortical structures, the visual system, somatosensory system, and the motor system in the brain and spinal cord. The culminating event on Friday will be a case studies test where you will “act” like neurologists to predict where a lesion in the brain or spinal cord is in a person, as well as “acting” like neuroradiologists in order to predict the symptoms and prognosis of patients with particular nervous system lesions. (Co-ed Neuronatomy programs also offered at Georgetown and UCLA)
  • Robotics: Students will explore the emerging science of robot mechanics by building a robot from scratch, remotely control it, experiment with light and pressure sensors, create drive trains for varying terrains and play robotic sports.  
Enrichment Activities in the afternoons and evenings give girls an opportunity for informal science learning, as well as leadership and problem-solving training, through workshops, experiments, guest speakers, and recreational activities. Students will also attend a mid-program excursion to a local science venue.
 
*Activities listed are examples of typical activities and are subject to change. 
 
The Staff at our science camps is made up of a fantastic group of role models who are teaching and/or studying science and are excited to share their passion with our campers.
