Summer Science and Innovation Camps

The Institute of the Americas Science and Innovation Summer Camp for Latin American high school students (14-18 years old) will be held July 2014 on the University of California, San Diego campus.

The fifth annual Science and Innovation Summer Camp will host up to 40 high school students from countries throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Canada, and the U.S. who will be selected based on their desire to conduct scientific research on the environment and climate change once they graduate from college.

During the two-week residential camp at the Institute of the Americas, students will receive classroom and field instruction from accredited Spanish-speaking community college teachers, with projects designed to help them understand the controversies and test scientific principles in the lab. The camp will also focus on innovation as students create and evaluate scientific and technological responses to climate change.

Students will conduct experiments on ocean science, climate change and energy conservation. They will test water samples
