ROEPER SUMMER SCIENCE CAMP 2014 (Grades 6-8)
The Roeper Summer Science Camp is an opportunity for middle school students who love science to explore science concepts with hands-on activities in real-life situations. We will build science knowledge and experience using inquiry-based activities that employ the scientific method, data collection and pure discovery. Students will learn to relate experimentation and science to the real world in these lively classes.
Science camp is led by The Roeper School science teacher, Wendy Mayer. Wendy holds an Associate’s degree from Schoolcraft College, a Bachelor’s Degree (summa cum laude) in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Science Education from Wayne State University. She has been teaching for nine years and currently teaches 7th and 8th Grade Science, Health and a multitude of middle school science electives.
