Governor's School accepting applications for GoSciTech summer camp

COLUMBIA--The Governor’s School for Science & Mathematics (GSSM) is accepting applications for GoSciTech, GSSM’s week-long, residential summer camp for rising 8th, 9th and 10th graders. The online application is available at: GoSciTech, held on GSSM’s Hartsville campus, will be offered for four separate weeks this summer: June 15-21, June 22-28, July 6-12 and July 13-19. With a wide variety of courses to choose from, students can select which week (or weeks) to attend. Courses cost either $725 or $750 per week, including room and board.

Courses offered this summer include, but are not limited to: CSI, Pre-Med and Anatomy, Programming with Minecraft, Engineering, Robotics Programming, Science of Music, Creating Computer Games, Marine Conservation Biology and Carolina 201, a race engineering camp, in partnership with Darlington Raceway. Courses will be taught by GSSM faculty, college and university professors, and professionals in their respective fields. “This summer we’re excited to offer 26 unique classes, eight of which are brand new,” says Susan Engelhardt, GoSciTech director. “For example, a course like Carolina 201 at the Darlington Raceway provides an opportunity to teach complex engineering concepts in a fun, hands-on setting.

This type of learning environment is engaging to students and delivers a more meaningful experience. That’s what GoSciTech is all about!” Acceptance to the GoSciTech program is based on academic achievement. Rising 8th, 9th and 10th graders who have demonstrated scholarship in science, math, computer science, technology or engineering, and desire an academically challenging experience are strong candidates.
