Research Camps at our History San Jose Park Headquarters

In the Bay Area, thousands of students participate in science fairs each year. Students struggle in project selection, lab techniques, instrumentation, model development, and project design.  Our camp topics help students in sharpening skills and learning about project design while working with our experienced mentors, talented scientists and engineers who engage students’ curiosity, imagination and creativity using a fun, hands-on approach. Students learn to apply the scientific process as well as core scientific principles, all while making exciting new discoveries.

Our Summer Research Camp Series starts in June of 2019 and runs through early-August.  The camps are offered to students entering grades 6 – 10. Each of the camp sessions offers an exciting, stand alone exploration of a particular topic or discipline. Alternatively, combine 2 or 3 sessions in a day  to assemble a more comprehensive experience.
