Offered to students in grades 5-8, this remote program requires cooperation, organization, and innovation. Under the supervision of the camp director and alongside Mass Academy students, participants work on a variety of hands-on activities within the disciplines of math, science, engineering and technology. Participants will receive a kit that will include all the necessary materials needed to complete the activities. Activities include daily engineering challenges, electronics and coding tasks utilizing an Arduino kit (provided with the materials) as well as math, chemistry and other science related workshops. Sessions will run via Zoom, Monday-Friday from 8:30-12:30. All participants will need access to a PC or Apple computer with a USB port (for the arduino kit). Both weeks will be the same content.

Math Quest is a summer program for kids who love to think about and participate in mathematics. Under the supervision of two experienced math teachers and alongside Mass Academy students, participants will learn how to problem-solve, pattern, work collaboratively, and develop their math abilities. Everyone will participate in the doing, understanding, and presentation of math in a supportive yet challenging environment.
Computer Quest is a fun and engaging summer program for students who love computer challenges. Under the supervision of the camp director and alongside Mass Academy students, participants will learn how to create a mobile app, program Lego robots, create their own video game, and develop art and animations
