6X WOW SCIENCE CAMPER HEADS TO MIT

One of our primary goals at Wow! Science is to help children fall in love with science, technology, engineering, and math. In the eight years since inception, we have received many testimonials about how the program enabled a child to grasp a math concept, cultivate a strong interest in science, improve their grades in school or major in a STEM field in college. We realize we have not done enough to share these testimonials with you. 

This year, we are asking families of campers who have aged out of our program to share impact of the program with us. First on our list is Daniel. We are excited to share that Daniel has been accepted at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to study computer science.

Daniel attended Wow! Science Camp from third through eighth grade and the growth of his interest in STEM was apparent. "Wow Science was the place I first learned about science...I was there every summer for six years", remarked Daniel. He went on to describe his excitement at the various projects he was exposed to, none of which grabbed his attention more than programming. "Once I started to program robots to perform all types of functions, I couldn't stop. I programmed every day at home, joined the robotics team in school, and just learned everything I could about it," said Daniel. 

While Daniel is not eligible to work as an Assistant Instructor (he needs 24 college credits), he will serve as a volunteer this summer. We look forward to having him share his passion for STEM with our campers this summer.

Please join us in congratulating Daniel on a truly amazing accomplishment.  

Next up is Samuel (sitting next to Daniel in the yellow camp T-shirt). Samuel has been offered admission to two selective pharmacy programs in the country. However, his story is still unfolding as he is waiting for an acceptance from his preferred college. Stay tuned!

JOIN OUR SOLAR ECLIPSE PARTY

Join us to view the first total solar eclipse since June 8, 1918. Solar eclipse glasses will be provided.


  
On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. The last time a total eclipse crossed the United States from sea to sea was June 8, 1918. The 2017 eclipse in either total or partial phase can be seen by over 500 million people in North and South America, Europe, and Africa. In the U.S., millions will gather along a tiny ribbon less than 100 miles wide to see totality, the complete blocking out of the sun by the Moon which will reveal the solar corona. The rest of entire country will be able to see a partial eclipse. It is also truly an historic event and a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature's most stunning displays.
