FSU Physics Education/Outreach
FSU Summer Science Camp
The NSF (National Science Foundation) sponsored Science and Math Camp takes place for six weeks in the summer and involves formal math, computer and science classes as well as carrying out research projects.
Applications are available in every public and private high school in Florida from the end of January until March 15, at which time they are due. The program primarily accepts rising 12th graders, but every year a few (about 4) outstanding, rising 11th graders are accepted. School guidance counselors, math teachers, and science teachers all receive applications and are asked to identify prospective participants and give the applications to them.
The program runs from Sunday, June 15 through Saturday, July 26th. Students are in classes taught by FSU faculty, but offered only to Young Scholars Program students on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. They spend all day Tuesdays and Thursdays with a faculty or post doctoral mentor working on a research project.
