Science-U Penn State Summer Science Camps


Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic in 2020, The Office of Science Outreach successfully held three summer camps online and expanded our school year programs into virtual formats as well. In addition, we held all 2021 Science-U Summer Camps remotely. Thank you for your patience as we worked to make Science-U fun and enjoyable for all involved!

Thank you to all who participated in our virtual 2021 Science-U camps! We enjoyed meeting so many campers and working with fantastic instructors and faculty. We will start planning the 2022 camp season soon and expect to have more information available by January 2022. Check back then, or contact us if you want to be involved.

Summer Camps

Each of our Science-U camps is designed to take campers through a one-week journey that investigates an area of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) in a fascinating and meaningful way. Guided by our passionate staff, Science-U campers are encouraged to ask questions, think critically, and explore all the ways that science can captivate them and make a difference in their everyday lives. Our sincere hope is that every camper comes out of their Science-U experience inspired to stay curious and keep learning about the world around them!  

Camp Scholarships & Financial Aid

Financial aid and scholarships to Science-U Summer Camps may be available to students who qualify.
