Aztec Science Camp
Aztec Science Camp for Kids
Aztec Science Camp was conceived and developed by professors at San Diego State University and the Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education for the benefit of exposing kids to science and developing their curiosity about the world around them.
Students participating in this program explore science content aligned with the Disciplinary Core Ideas of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). They also engage in NGSS Science and Engineering Practices as they plan and conduct investigations.
See kids exploring science ideas on the Aztec Science Camp Facebook page.
Aztec Science Camp Summer 2016
From the SDSU Newscenter article Inspiring Future Scientists (August 12, 2016):
Nearly two dozen children are sitting around a large table inside a laboratory at
San Diego State University waiting for the smoke to settle. Their eyes, protected
by safety goggles, are trained on an orange cooler. Just minutes before, the kids
blew up balloons and placed bets on how many of their balloons could fit inside the
“This isn’t happening,” shouts one child in disbelief as nearly half the balloons go inside the container. Another child simply exclaims “This is so cool!”
Welcome to Aztec Science Camp.
