Summer Science Camp and InstitutePalm Beach Atlantic University's Center for Integrative Science Learning offers a Summer Science Camp and Summer Science Institute. The camps use a multi-disciplinary approach for Big Ideas and Florida Department of Education Standards in science with fun, unconventional approaches. 


Science Camp


Students 1st-5th Grade

The Science of Art - June 12-16

Students will investigate the science of sculpture, music, and visual arts.  They will do this through lab experiments that involve topics like earth science, acoustics, kinetics, and color.

  • Tuition $325.00/student/week.
  • It is anticipated that the total number of campers will be capped at 75.
  • Activities are modified according to age/grade levels.
  • Camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • Extended care will be provided at additional cost (7:30-8:30 a.m. and 4-5:30 p.m.) of $15.00/child/day.
  • Lunch is NOT provided – students MUST bring their own lunch/water bottle and snacks.





Campers going into grade 1 through 5 will be grouped by age level (Group 1: 1st graders; Group 2: 2nd-3rd graders; Group 3: 4-5th graders). Exploration activities and experiments will be centered around the science topic of the day and are held outdoors, in the classroom, and in the laboratory led by PBA faculty. Each group will have two PBA college student camp counselors. Campers will have a break for physical activity and free time after lunch.

Summer Science Institute


Students 6th-12th Grade
The Science of Art - June 12-16

Students will investigate the scientific concepts foundational to the arts.  The Science Department, in conjunction with faculty from the College of Fine Art, will lead students in hands-on laboratories, exploring such things as material properties, acoustics, holography, image formation, mathematics, and kinetics.  Students will discover how these concepts apply to the artistic disciplines. 

  • Tuition $400.00/student.
  • It is anticipated that the total number of campers will be capped at 48 students.
  • Camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Lunch in the cafeteria is included.




Experiment and team-based learning is grouped by grade level (Group 1: 6-8 graders, Group 2: 9-12 graders). Each group will have a PBA college student as a Counselor. Laboratory experiments are led by PBA professors (physics, chemistry, biology, arts) twice daily.

Daily Schedule

8:30-9 a.m. Check-in
9-9:50 a.m. Lecture/instructional time led by PBA faculty
10-12 p.m.  Session 1 – lab experiment
12-12:50 p.m. Lunch
1-3 p.m. Session 2 – lab experiment
3-3:30 p.m. Dismissal
