Learning + Fun + Growth!
This summer camp explores real-life topics through reading, art and model making, creative writing, doing research, and discussion as well as presentation. Using Project-Based Learning (PBL), each week we will introduce a new topic through different approaches. You will learn about the STEAM and sociological aspects of a topic, and demonstrate your understanding, opinion, or solution through multiple modalities. We will complete one topic each week. The curriculum will be designed by educators who are experienced in different fields and facilitated by professional teachers.
Promote problem-solving skills and literacy – The essential aptitudes that lead to success in your studies, SHSAT or SAT/ACT exams, and beyond.
Cultivate intrinsic motivation and interest towards learning. Different learning approaches and responding make learning fun and effective. Real-life topics make learning relevant and meaningful to your life, and enable you to apply knowledge into practice.
Develop interests that reflect your skills, talents, and potentials by exploring and working with approaches best suitable for you. Learning about different topics can ignite your interest towards different fields.
