The Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics (GSSM) is accepting applications for GoSciTech, GSSM’s weeklong, residential summer camp for rising eighth, ninth and 10th graders.
The GoSciTech camp runs for four separate weeks at the GSSM Hartsville campus. Camp dates are June 15-21, June 22-28, July 6-12 and July 13-19.
The camps offer a wide variety of courses from which to choose, and students can select which week or multiple weeks to attend.
Cost for the courses range from $725 to $750 per week and include room and board with subjects including CSI, Pre-Med and Anatomy, Programming with Minecraft, Engineering, Robotics Programming, Science of Music, Creating Computer Games, Marine Conservation Biology and Carolina 201, a race engineering session in partnership with Darlington Raceway.
Course instructors include GSSM faculty, college and university professors, and professionals in their respective fields.
“This summer we’re excited to offer 26 unique classes, eight of which are brand new,” said Susan Engelhardt, GoSciTech director. “For example, a course like Carolina 201 at the Darlington Raceway provides an opportunity to teach complex engineering concepts in a fun, hands-on setting.
“This type of learning environment is engaging to students and delivers a more meaningful experience. That’s what GoSciTech is all about.”
Acceptance to the GoSciTech program is based on academic achievement.
The camp deadline is May 9. Financial aid is only available to South Carolina residents.
