In a new partnership, i2 Camp, a national network of hands-on summer enrichment programs, and Francis W. Parker School are excited to offer an engaging and enriching summer camp to engage middle school children in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). i2 Camp (www.i2camp.org) offers a broad range of fun, hands-on courses developed in collaboration with some of the world’s leading scientific and academic institutions, including MIT, Stanford University, the American Museum of Natural History, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, National Audubon Society and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Course offerings cover topics in Engineering, Genetics, Robotics, Nanotechnology, Ecology and Mathematics. These courses have been designed to provide middle schoolers with innovative educational experiences not found in traditional middle school classrooms. Each course is restricted to 20 campers and is led by a team of three instructors, including an experienced K-12 teacher and a graduate student.
i2 Camp’s Francis W. Parker campus is its first in the Chicago area. The camp will run for five weeks, from June 16 through July 25. Other i2 Camp cities include New York, Boston, Palo Alto, Washington DC and Los Angeles, with over 20 locations at some of the country’s top independent schools.
