Cool science summer camps

See "The 20 coolest STEM summer camps," a list that goes far beyond Space Camp, from the National Flight Academy in Florida to the Summer Safari Day Camp in D.C.


  1. Hi! You have such a nice page. I'll try to visit some other time. Thank you so much for sharing this blog post. I'll be looking forward for your other posts as well. The practice of running residential holidays for children away from their own home seems to have originated in Appenzell in the Alps in 1876, when Pastor Bion set up holiday camps in which children made tree-houses, sang songs, did drama, made kites and had adventure games. Keep your student active and engaged this coming summer with a Mathnasium summer camp that will help them avoid the dreaded “summer slide.” The summer slide is the two months (on average) of instruction that children ‘lose’ over the summer due to lack of engagement.

  2. This is really an informative & useful blog. Thanks for sharing with us. Summer camps

  3. There are just several things which only summer camps could teach your kids so enrolling your kids in one of these summer camps would surely be a wise decision on your part.

  4. SO glad to see a blog about this! STEM careers are something I know about being an electrical engineer. It is tough to move up the ladder with it being so male dominated. But it can be done! I also wrote about it on my own blog here http://leanedon.com/promoting-women-stem-careers/.

    I think more needs to be done obviously to help females along, but blogs like this certainly raise awareness. Great stuff!!
