CYBER SUMMER CAMP 2020

Imagine what your kids will discover this summer with The Citizen Science Lab!

 

We offer fun, hands-on camps for grades 1 through 10. With a full range of science and engineering adventures -- including electronics, outer space, geology, microbiology, chemistry, and aquaponics -- there’s sure to be something that excites and inspires the budding scientist in your home.

Our Cyber Summer Camps will utilize kits and videos which allot each student 2-3 hours of science exploration per day, with a schedule that is unique to each student.

 

Our students will also have the option of partaking in voluntary 1-hour morning and afternoon check ins with our instructors.

Each student will receive: 

  • A complete kit of materials and instructions to complete STEM activities and experiments. These kits can either be mailed to each family or scheduled to be picked up at the lab using a no contact delivery system.

  • Opportunities to ask The CSL’s educators about any questions regarding our programming.

  • Access to videos from The CSL’s educators and access to online resources and interactive activities for learning.

WHAT PARENTS SAY

A great place to learn and connect with other budding scientists. We have participated in many of their classes and a summer camp. We are never disappointed with the kindness of the teachers and the level
of information given. It is a great learning
resource in Pittsburgh.

MICROBES AROUND US

Ages 10-14

Did you know that there may be more bacteria on the planet than there are stars in the universe? Join us to learn all about where microorganisms live and all kinds of cool things that they can do. We will begin by exploring how bacteria grow and diving into ways to prevent bacterial growth using antibiotics and common food spices. We will then follow up with experiments and activities which will engage participants in the fundamentals of fungi and viruses. This memorable experience will change the way kids think about microorganisms.
