Weeks and Enrichment Themes
(Please note that the program runs 9 am through 12 pm each day listed).

July 6 – 8: "Ambassadors for the Environment"
This week’s theme centers on our responsibility to the environment. We will explore ways that we can make “green” choices to care for and improve the environment around us. We will look at how we can reduce, reuse, recycle and upcycle trash before discarding it into a landfill.

July 12 – 15: "Out of this World"
This week's theme guides students to look beyond our planet to gain a further appreciation of our natural resources to help us better understand and realize how valuable and fragile our home is. Our focus centers on the sun, moon, Mars, and our galaxy.

July 26 – 29: "Go for the Gold"
This week’s activities use the Olympic Games as a backdrop to explore world geography, circuits, Olympic events, as well as the biomechanics of Olympic athletes.

August 2 – 5: "Is the Force with You?"
This week centers on examining Sir Isaac Newton and his Laws of Physics. The concepts of gravity, motion, friction and inertia, guide our experiments and lessons.

August 9 – 12: "Weather Watchers"
This week's activities center around understanding weather and climate change. Students will design, examine, and use weather instruments to observe weather among the microclimates around the high school. Students will participate in a Socratic seminar around possible solutions for global warming.

August 16 – 19: "Middle School Transition"
This week’s activities will focus on the middle school transition for students starting sixth grade for the 2021-2022 school year. Activities will focus on the skills and orientation necessary to successfully transition to middle school.
