Summer Science Program

"This program has provided me with the knowledge needed for college, but it has also provided me with an experience that I will cherish for a long time. It is one thing to learn about topics that you have never heard of before, but to have fun while doing it is another!." That is a direct quote from a participant in last year’s Queens College Summer Science Program. So what’s in store for Summer Science Program participants? Here’s a small sampling: mind-bending puzzles that wake students up each morning of the program’s 10 days; the drama of dissecting Copenhagen, an award-winning play in which physics intersects with history and morality; lectures on topics ranging from cognition and the brain to expeditions to Antarctica and more; hands-on activities in physics, computer science, biology, and neuroscience. If you want the opportunity to touch a human brain, row a boat on the Bronx River, or simply get a feel for life on a college campus, the Queens College Summer Science Program may be the perfect fit.
