ce 28 "The camp gave my son valuable problem solving skills and confidence he needs to stick with it and work through problems. This has had a trickle down effect in all of his classes. He has shown a great deal of maturity, initiative and determination as a result of the camp." "One of the majo r

advantages that we saw after the Summe r program was her level of excitement about math and science. Prior to the progr am she didn't really unde rstand that math is an integr al part of robotics and a lo t of other sciences.
