Teachers College offers summer camps for Valley youth

May 03, 2011

The Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College is collaborating with partners in the community to bring two summer camp offerings to ASU.

Discovery and Invention Summer Camp
June 13-17 and June 20-24, ASU Polytechnic campus

Two sessions of the science-focused Discovery and Invention Summer Camp are being offered at the Polytechnic campus in conjunction with the Arizona Science Center and sponsored by Boeing. Students learn about technologies of the past, such as steam power, hot air balloons and early aircraft, and then invent their own new technologies, which will be showcased at the Invention Convention the Thursday of each session.

Additional five-day sessions for the camp are being offered June 6-July 22 at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix, as well as two sessions at Centennial High School in Peoria.

The camp is open to ages six through 12. Pricing for the camps is $200 for Arizona Science Center members and $225 for non-members. ASU faculty and staff receive the member rate.

For information, please visit or call Tara Oakes at 602-716-2000, Ext. 2530.

The second summer camp is designed to excite students in high school to become teachers and provide them with a vision of schooling for the future.

The Hunnicutt Future Educators’ Academy immerses students in a five-day, residential summer program with award-winning teachers focusing on a vision of schooling for the future; problem solving, creativity and instructional strategies; interpersonal and leadership skills; and a college campus experience.
