This summer Ursinus College will be launching a new FREE week-long summer science camp for 6th-12th grade students that seeks to foster interest in applied sciences, such as engineering, material synthesis, and experimental research.
Glass and Materials Science to Engage Students
June 24 - June 29
GaMES (Glass and Materials science to Engage Students) is designed to be both fun and educational, and to provide real opportunities for students, especially girls and underserved student populations, to engage in hands-on scientific learning, collaborative research, problem solving and discussion, led by Ursinus undergraduate students and professors, as well as guest speakers.
Students will delve into engineering, electronics, energy, biomaterials, optics, as well as the bridging of art and science, while exploring hot topics like: nanomaterials, quantum dot, drug delivery and solar cells.
The program hosted by the Ursinus College Physics Department and the Society of Physics Students (SPS) is funded by a grant from the American Ceramics Society (ACS) and being offered at no cost to accepted students. Space is limited for this FREE competitive program, and lunch will be provided on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
