Do you know a middle school student (graduating 5th -8th graders) looking for something to do this summer for the month of July? You’re in luck! Check out the 2014 AfterZone Summer Scholars Camp brochures!
In partnership with the Providence Public Schools, the AfterZone Summer Scholars gets young people off the couch and into the community, giving them the opportunity to learn how to sail, hang out with animals at the zoo, go kayaking, learn to cook, trek through the forests and fields of Rhode Island, and so much more. The best part? While they’re enjoying a variety of FREE and FUN summer activities, they’ll also be improving their STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) skills.
The summer program taps the expertise of formal and informal educators simultaneously, pairing teachers and community-based educators in collaborative teams. So while students are collecting plankton on Narragansett Bay, they’re also learning how to analyze data with a math teacher, learning the physics behind sailing, and trying their hands at geometry as they build their solar-powered go-carts!
All transportation to and from the camp, field trips, as well as breakfast, lunch and a snack are included as part of this FREE program. The AfterZone Summer Scholars Camp takes place July 7th-July 31st, Monday – Thursday from 9:00am to 3:00pm daily.
There is currently still space available at the following AfterZone Summer Scholars Camp sites:
- Nathan Bishop Middle School

- DelSesto Middle School
- Roger Williams Middle School
