Camp Ciencia

Science & Innovation Summer Camp

The Institute of the Americas Science and Innovation Summer Camp for high school students (14-18 years old) is held each summer on the University of California, San Diego campus.

Workshop for STEM Instructors

The five-day workshop, engages high school instructors in an idea-generating program designed to promote innovative teaching techniques in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

International Editions

Given the success of the STEM Programs in La Jolla and the impact it has created among its students and instructors, the Institute will be launching a Professional Workshop specifically designed for Mexican and Argentine STEM Instructors.

Our Alumni are Invested in Long-Term Hemispheric Impact

By means of an alumni page and social media, the Institute of the Americas maintains contact with students and educators throughout their enrollment process to university, pursuit of STEM-related careers, and implementation of practical science curriculum.

Many of the Science & Innovation Summer Camp alumni have already been admitted to prestigious universities throughout the hemisphere and are currently pursuing studies in diverse STEM fields.

Proving that commitment to STEM education can surpass any barriers; alumni from the 2015 professional teacher's workshop continue to construct an interactive science curriculum linking Mexico and Chile in an innovative real time online-virtual classroom session where students from both schools learn together about biology and robotics overcoming distance in their common goal to learn science.
