Aztec Science Camp Returns

A weeklong camp exposes kids to science and engineering.
By SDSU News Team
 

This summer, San Diego State University is hosting its third annual science day camp for kids. 

Each Aztec Science Camp session is five days of science and discovery for ages 7 to 14. Camp is designed to expose kids to science and develop their curiosity about the world around them. Campers will have their science adventures on SDSU's campus.

Topics will vary so that children can attend for up to two weeks and engage with new ideas about science each week. Camp Sessions include Planet Protectors and Toyologists (for campers ages 7 to 8 and 9 to 10), and Rokenbok Designers and Clue Creators (for campers ages 11 to 12 and 13 to 14).

The camp co-directors are experienced K-12 teachers; the lead teachers are completing SDSU's teacher credential program and are passionate about science; and camp counselors are SDSU’s own science and engineering majors.

More information

There will be two sessions offered — August 1 through 5 and August 8 through 12. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with extended care available in the afternoon. Registration is now open. SDSU faculty, staff, and students receive a $25 discount per camper per week. For complete details or to register, visit the Aztec Science Camp website.
