Concordia University Irvine (CUI) today announced its partnership with Project Scientist to offer a STEM-focused summer academy for girls ages 4-12. Project Scientist Summer Academy is a six-week day camp with a curriculum focused on engaging and empowering girls with a passion, talent and aptitude for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The camp will run weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning June 19 through July 28, on the campus of Concordia University Irvine. Concordia Irvine is among three California university campuses—including the University of Southern California and the California Institute of Technology—offering Project Scientist Summer Academy. This is the first year the academy will be offered at Concordia Irvine.
Students attending the summer academy will learn from credentialed educators, have daily interactions with female STEM role models from a variety of fields, participate in hands-on experiments and practice strategies in teamwork, resiliency, self/group motivation, and trial and error.
Each week, students will explore different themes and attend a field trip to a location that enhances that week’s area of focus. The weekly themes will include Sports Medicine, Designing Your World, Mythbusters, Coding and Makerspace, Space Explorers and Deep Sea Divers.
