College Now @ Queens College
Summer Science Program
"This program has definitely provided me with knowledge, skills, and insight that will help me in my classes."
That is a direct quote from a participant in last year's College Now Summer Science program at Queens College. So what got that student—and dozens of others—so excited?
For some, it was the mind-bending puzzles session that woke students up each morning of the program's 10 days. For others, it was the drama of dissecting Copenhagen
, an award-winning play in which physics intersects with history and morality.
What will it be for you? Maybe the guest lecturers who speak on a variety of current, scientific issues or the opportunity to get the feel for life on a college campus.
