QuantumCamp, with locations in the East Bay, San Francisco, and Palo Alto, offers exciting, hands-on, discovery-based math and science camps exploring the fundamental concepts of both subjects.
The program promises sophisticated science, and is a clever way to introduce a child to a lab environment. Using age-appropriate science methodology and high quality materials and equipment, QuantumCamp provides an opportunity for kids to truly experiment.
Fun and engaging math projects occupy the other half of the day. Students are divided by levels (ages) so that they can work together and enjoy the journey of discovery.
From the website:
Students of all backgrounds, academic experiences, and learning styles come together in our classrooms and create an intellectually rich and socially positive atmosphere at QuantumCamp. The classroom experience is activity based and focused on discovering big concepts. Almost always, this is a collaborative effort relying on the important perspectives of all students. It is a very social atmosphere.
QuantumCamp also produces courses and curriculum during the academic year for homeschool students.
What parents say:
“Every day I picked up my happy, enthusiastic and pluggedin teenaged son from QuantumCamp. Every day built on the last….it just got better and better! We have traveled around the country taking classes and QC is in a league of its own in our humble opinion. Everything about our experience was well worth every mile. We look forward to QC2 and beyond. My deepest gratitude to both of you!”
“My daughter gave it a big thumbs up! She felt trusted with complex/dangerous items. I am glad this is learning for learning’s sake—— with that being the primary focus. Rochelle really enjoyed all the teachers
she had this week. You guys are awesome!”
“This camp is unique in its emphasis on hands-on experimental science, with proper equipment and materials. My son had a more solid understanding of basic chemical concepts, and he was introduced to methodical record-keeping, proper handling of chemicals, and cleaning his bench. As a surprising extra benefit, he is much better at cleaning up in the kitchen at home!”
The East Bay location of QuantumCamp is Chabot Space and Science Center.
Camp is for 1st – 9th graders. See QuantumCamp website for details about sessions, activities, and schedule.
