Saturday Camps

The academic year programs occur one Saturday per month during the school year. The SMILE camp experience is about doing authentic hands-on science experiments. We do a new set of experiments each month which includes a chemistry, physics, materials and engineering experiment. We do not publish the experiments of future camps. Our focus is on the "Experience" rather than the individual experiments. The interaction with peers, conversation with mentors, mental challenges, exposure to new information, excitement – these are the things advanced students need and SMILE provides. The individual experiments are the means to provide that "Experience."
