Summer Science and Robotics Program for High Ability Students
The Maryvillle Summer Science and Robotics Program for High Ability Students is an engaging opportunity for students who are interested in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) fields. We offer high end programming with highly qualified faculty, including professors, engineers, computer programmers, and gifted certified teachers.
The program is designed for children and teens ages 4-15 who are either already identified as gifted or who perform well above others their age in science, technology, engineering, art and math including exceptional use of engineering toys such as LEGO or other building sets.
Our classrooms have small class sizes and are highly differentiated to meet individual participant needs. Participants work in pairs with ability peers. Class sizes are limited to 12-14 participants with an overall faculty/staff to participant ratio of 1:6. Each classroom contains an expert faculty member and an assistant education student. Some classrooms may also include a graduate student in a gifted education practicum.
The program capacity is very limited and expected to fill early. Complete our online registration as soon as possible.
The program runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. July 22-26 and July 29-Aug. 2, 2013. Participants may participate full time (4 classes), sign up for a morning class in either or both weeks, an afternoon class in either or both weeks, or take a morning class one week and an afternoon class in the other.
Morning participants arrive between 8:50 and 9:10 and must be picked up between 11:50 and 12:10. Afternoon participants arrive between 12:50 and 1:10 and must be picked up between 3:50 and 4:10. Full-day participants arrive between 8:50 and 9:10 and must be picked up between 3:50 and 4:10.
