Summer Programs

Celebrating 17 Years of STEM-focused Student Programs

SDSC Summer Camps Returning in 2023!

Our summer program for middle and high school students was created to be STEM –focused, giving students the opportunity to learn about science, technology, computer science, and engineering in a fun and supportive environment. Originally spanning 10 weeks over the summer, our programs for students in grades 6–12 has changed slightly to accommodate earlier school start dates and year round school schedules. Taught by current and retired educators, our programming, robotics, engineering, graphic arts and new technology summer camps have given thousands of students the jumpstart they need as they begin their educational journey.
