Information applies to: SciVentures
SciVentures is more than a camp. It's an in-depth science experience for middle-school students that has become one of Morehead's most popular summer offerings. SciVentures recognizes that science doesn't only happen in a lab: Science also happens in the field.
To provide middle-school students with an immersive experience in science careers, SciVentures offers true-to-life field activities, laboratory experiments, talks with UNC researchers and teamwork with peers who share their interests.
Children entering grades 6, 7 or 8 are eligible to register for SciVentures, which is a one-week program. Registration for SciVentures is concurrent with registration for Morehead Summer Science Camps.
SciVentures sessions fill quickly, so don't delay your registration. This year, Morehead is offering two different SciVentures programs -- at two different locations!
