Summer Science Sleuths at Duke is a recreational, residential 2-week summer science camp on the campus of Duke University in Durham, N.C. Campers who are selected to attend will receive full tuition and travel scholarships to join us June 15-June 28, 2014. (Note: Campers from the West Coast should plan to join us on June 14 to ensure adequate travel considerations.)
Summer Science Sleuths at Duke is looking for bright, curious current 7th and 8th graders who like science, but are not sure if a career in science is what they want to pursue! Through games, experiments, social events, hands-on projects, field trips and recreation, campers will explore the connections between science, medicine and the everyday world. Tune your senses to the awesome world around you and come explore it with us!
To be eligible, we must receive a Camp Application (filled out by a parent or guardian), a Camper Survey (filled out by the camper) and a Teacher nomination (filled out by your science teacher) by February 25, 2014. Only online applications are considered.
Note: This is intended to be a 3-year experience. Students who attended Summer Science Sleuths at Duke in 2013 (and are currently in 8th or 9th grade) need to reapply for the 2014 camp.
Only students who are currently in 7th or 8th grades may apply as new campers, as follows:
