Residential Summer Science Splash Camp 7th-9th grade http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220424843?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220424843?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Sunday, Jun 5 - Friday, Jun 10
(3 p.m. - 2 p.m.) Location: Campus.

Summer Science Splash Camp (SSSCamp) is a week-long residential summer camp funded by the II-VI  Foundation on the campus of UTD). Students entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade can register. 

What will they be doing?

Explore the breadth of STEM with robotics/computer programming, electrical engineering, chemistry, biology and more! Spend your day engaging in STEM activities and performing experiments in the lab using some of the high-tech equipment college students and research scientists use. At night, play games, sports, watch movies or talk with new friends. Between daily activities  and nightly events, work with your team to gain points for prizes.

Who is attending?

Students entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade can register. Students come from across Texas and beyond. (Maximum of 50 students per session.)

What does it cost?

Underwritten by a grant from the II-VI Foundation, each session cost $600 per student ($1,100 value). Cost includes meals, lodging, snacks, activities and camp T-shirt.

When is the Summer Science Splash Camp?

Choose from two sessions: June 5-10 or June 12-17. Campers should arrive Sunday afternoon by 3:00 p.m. and depart Friday afternoon around 2:00 p.m. All campers must be present for the entire week.

Who will I work with?

Certified science teachers from local school districts instruct the activities during the day. They not only facilitate activities, they develop many of them prior to camp with the assistance of camp counsellors, in order to provide new exciting investigations.

Camp counsellors (one counselor to every 8 students) supervise students in the late afternoons, evenings and overnight. Staff consists of well-trained UTD students eager to share their enthusiasm for science and teamwork.

How are the UT Dallas dorm rooms?

All dorm rooms are air-conditioned. Every camper will have a private bedroom within a shared suite, that includes a bathroom. Each bedroom is separately keyed for privacy. Dorms have 24-hour front desk service and possess media-equipped classrooms and common rooms with internet access and cable television. Roommates are assigned by Residential life and cannot be guaranteed.

Will there be anything good to eat?

The cafeteria serves youth-friendly food on a daily basis in the summer and can accommodate allergies and vegetarian diets. If you have particular needs, contact us for more information.

Do I have to know a lot about science to attend?

Of course we don't expect you to already know everything, but we do expect you to be excited and motivated to learn!
