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
June 6-10, 2022

Health Science
$325.00/student/week

Students will investigate health sciences by exploring different aspects of human and animal anatomy and function as well as be introduced to how a health care professional may help.  They will do this through lab experiments that involve topics like vision, hearing, body mechanics, nutrition, and cardiology.

  • 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 8:30am to 3:30pm.
  • Tuition $325.00/student/week.

Summer Science Institute

 

Students 6th -12th Grade
June 6-10, 2022

Health Sciences
$400.00/student

Students will explore how the body works and how it can be applied in health care fields. In the science laboratory, students will explore the anatomy and physiology of different organ systems, covering topics such as respiration, cardiology, and body mechanics.  In conjunction with the Nursing and Human & Health Performance Departments, students will have a hands-on approach to understand applied health fields like nursing and physical therapy.

  • It is anticipated that the total number of campers will be capped at 48 students.
  • Camp will run from 8:30am to 3:00pm – cost: $400.00/student.
