What is Science in Nature?
The Poudre Learning Center's Science in Nature Camp is a summer science research program for students where you will “see” yourself as a scientist. During the program, you will experience what it is like to be a scientist through different activities and projects at the Poudre Learning Center (PLC). Middle school students will gather for a week-long science experience based around adventure, art, exploration and natural history. Students will also have the opportunity to do their own research investigation in small teams. Students will go into the school year with this experience to share with their friends and provide real-world context for the science studies ahead. Come have tons of fun and make new friends!
Students that will be in 6th, 7th or 8th grade during the 2018-2019 school year are eligible to apply.
The program is limited to 30 participants.
