Sci-Q Update: Due to the winter storms and PEEC's week-long loss of power, the Sci-Q deadline has been extended to April 15. If you have already submitted an application and you have not received a confirmation, please resend your completed application. Occasionally power outages cause glitches with our email system. 

Come be a part of this unique, week-long camp designed for aspiring scientists like you! The Sci-Q Project will be held from Sunday, July 1 - Saturday, July 7, 2018 at the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) located in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Students will interact with local college professors, hand-picked for their fun, approachable nature, as they showcase their research in a variety of fascinating fields. They'll also share their personal stories about the challenges and rewards of becoming scientists.

It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will give you a definite edge in this exciting career path. The program is limited to just 20 talented students who will be entering grades 8-10 in the fall of 2018.  

The 2018 Sci-Q Project is funded by Sanofi Pasteur. Each student who is accepted is asked to pay only a nominal fee ($75.00) to participate in the program, while the balance of the tuition, room, and board will be covered.

Topics to be Explored

  • Genetic Engineering
  • Geology and Paleontology
  • Wildlife Biology
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Entomology
  • Neuroscience
  • Organic Chemistry Science

Participants will conduct fieldwork on an ongoing scientific research project during the week. Field trips are also planned for the week.
