A great program with camps for kids between the grades of 2-12.

Program Goals

  1. To create exciting and engaging science experiences for all participants (to promote the pursuit of personal interests in the STEM fields).
  2.  To boost matriculation and retention in the STEM disciplines, at both K-12 and postsecondary levels.
  3. To increase science literacy (STEM content learning).
  4. To improve scientific thinking including creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and leadership (i.e., communication, teamwork, collaboration, and advocacy).


Science-U is dedicated to advancing science literacy in youth through the sharing and discovery of scientific knowledge within the intellectual foundations at Penn State. Our chief goals are to educate and inspire students, encourage critical thinking, and prepare them to become responsible, skilled and caring citizens, as well as capable scientists and teachers when faced with tomorrow’s challenges.
