Summer Science Academy at BSU

The Center for the Advancement of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Education at Bridgewater State University is offering a hands-on science academy focused on biotechnology, environmental biology and physics.

The Summer Science Academy offers one-week science classes for middle school students entering grades 6 through 9 in the fall.

The academy allows students to work as scientists and is designed to provide them with the foundations necessary for further scientific exploration. Students conduct hands-on investigations in their selected class and participate in extracurricular science activities. They also focus on the importance of science communication as they lead presentations on the last day of class.

Three one-week sessions are offered from July 7 to July 25 as follows: 

Session I, July 7-11, “Whale of a Mystery”
Session II, July 14-18, “Whale of a Mystery” or “x-STREAM Adventures”
Session III, July 21-25, “Forensics Institute of Bridgewater” or “Up in the Air: The Physics of Flight”

A program fee of $400 per week covers all course expenses including lab supplies and materials. The fee does not include lunch or transportation. Limited needs-based scholarships are available. For more information and to register, visit or contact Maura Whittemore at or by calling 508.531.2575.
