Spring Science Academy at BSU

The Center for the Advancement of STEM Education at Bridgewater State University is offering a Spring Science Academy titled “Enduring Everest: An Engineering Challenge.”

During the week-long program, participating middle school students will design materials necessary to overcome the challenges of conquering the mountain. Hypothermia, carrying the necessary supplies to camps and altitude sickness stand in the way. It is up to the students to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to achieve the ambitious goal to summit Everest.

The academy will be held during April school vacation week – April 19-22, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily – in the Dana Mohler-Faria Center for Science & Mathematics. A $325 program fee covers course expenses including lab supplies and materials, but does not cover lunch or transportation. A limited number of scholarships are available to students who demonstrate significant financial need and academic merit.

This program is designed for students who are in grades six through eight. Students who have already completed this class during the summer academy are not eligible to participate.
