Foundations in Science and Mathematics
Summer Courses for High School Students
These two-week summer courses are designed to help local students prepare
for upcoming high school science and mathematics courses. It will emphasize
important introductory concepts and tools in order to provide a strong
foundation for later learning. All students are welcome to attend, but keep in
mind that most of these courses are designed for students who will attend high school
in the fall.
We will be expanding again for the summer of 2017! This year will feature the addition of courses in Brain Science, Environmental Science, Forensic Science, and Evolutionary Biology. Our courses are designed to provide summer enrichment and build a firm foundation for college courses.
