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.

Now, considering the ongoing pandemic, the uncertainty of the summer months, and the safety of our campers and staff, we have decided to hold all 2021 Science-U Summer Camps remotely. Some of the camp offerings may be slightly different than what we offered previously. However, we will try to accommodate as many of the registered campers from 2020 as we can.  Once we have finalized a schedule, we will contact families about registration for our virtual Science-U camps later this Spring. Thank you for your patience as we work to make Science-U fun and enjoyable for all involved!
