Northwest Nazarene University will again host the 2C Science Camp June 4-15. The science camp is put on each year by the Canyon County Keeping the Promise Coalition. The Coalition is made up of leaders from business, education, government and non-profit organizations as well as parents who want to see a higher percentage of children go on to graduate from high school and to pursue college or vocational training.
Incoming seventh grade students from Canyon County schools are exposed to science, technology, engineering and math in new and exciting ways. The hope is to have the “hands on” experiences will encourage students to want to stay in school and take more math and science classes and perhaps pursue careers in engineering and technology.
The camp is funded through an Idaho Federal Highway Administration grant and administered through the Idaho Transportation Department and the J.A Kathryn Albertson Foundation.
Student mentors from Northwest Nazarene University, the College of Western Idaho and high school students from the Idaho Center for Advanced Technology through the Nampa School District will guide the campers through activities over the two week program.
