Next Generation Scientists Virtual Summer Mini-Camp

*Via Zoom July 27-31, 2020

The Next Generation Scientists Virtual Summer Mini-Camp provides an excellent opportunity for budding scientists of high school age to explore subjects as diverse as astronomy, biology, chemistry, environmental science, geology, mathematics, meteorology/climatology, and physics. The program allows students to witness scientific experimentation and discovery. It also provides a unique opportunity to meet online with college faculty who are also professional scientists, along with Widener undergraduate science majors. And best of all, tuition is free, although there will be a nominal cost for supplies to perform some of the experiments at home. We are confident that your child/children will find our virtual summer program to be stimulating and rewarding.
