Summer Science Splash Camp is a week-long residential summer camp funded by the II-VI Foundation and hosted by Science in Motion on the campus of Juniata College.
Spend your day performing experiments in the lab and outdoors using the same high-tech equipment college students and research scientists use. During free time, enjoy water activities, tennis, swimming and other splashing competitions. At night, play games or sports, watch movies or talk with new friends. Between daily experiments and nightly events, work with your team to gain points for prizes.
Who is attending?
Students entering 7th, 8th, or 9th grade in 2018 can register. Students come from across Pennsylvania and beyond. (Maximum of 60 students per session.)
Each year, TAMS students receive a date book – what we call a “school planner.” At the start of this year, we went through lessons about how to effectively use a planner to manage assignments, improve time management, and stay organized. Keeping track of due dates and activities is only part of the planning process. Breaking down assignments to manageable tasks, spreading out projects, blocking off time to study (not just completing an assignment), and checking off assignments that have been turned in are all ways to use a planner to plan for success! We know that effective use of a planner is a key to success in school. We are working with students to build this life-long routine. If you haven’t seen your child’s planner yet, please ask him/her to show it to you and talk about how he/she is using it. Thank you for helping us encourage this very important habit!
Middle School Moving to Block Scheduling for 2017-18 school year
In order to better instruct students, the middle school will be moving to a modified block schedule at the start of the 2017-2018 school year. “Blocking” means to combine periods so that classes are extended to two class periods, instead of one. Read more here.
