Palm 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.
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.
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.
|7:30-8:30 a.m.||Extended Morning Care|
|9-10:15 a.m.||Science Activity|
|10:30-11:45 a.m.||Science Activity|
|1-1:45 p.m.||Activities in the Gym|
|2-3:15 p.m.||Science Activity|
|3:30-4 p.m.||Pick Up|
|4-5:30 p.m.||Extended Care|
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.
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.
|9-9:50 a.m.||Lecture/instructional time led by PBA faculty|
|10-12 p.m.||Session 1 – lab experiment|
|1-3 p.m.||Session 2 – lab experiment|
