Science Camp

The Foundation of Discovery


Welcome to the Science Camps at Cal Poly Pomona!!! The science camps have undergone an upgrade, infusing camp exercises with activities used in the college curriculum. Guided by the Next Generation Science Standards, campers will take on Cal Poly Pomona's motto of "Learn by Doing" Science Camp is designed to provide a wealth of fun and to engage campers in learning & science at an early age. Science Camp activities are based on exercises and projects that include team challenges, general arts & crafts, as well as captivating activities in the sciences. Areas that we cover in our camp activities include biology, food science, chemistry, astronomy, forensics, physics and engineering. Campers will build projects, learn teamwork, learn from worksheets & handouts, and discover how science works.
