Summer Science Academy
Lipscomb University’s Summer Science Academy offers three ways to blend summer fun with summer learning.
Summer doesn’t have to be a time-out for learning! Lipscomb University’s Summer Science Academies offer unique opportunities to open a student’s mind to new ideas, new experiences and new challenges—while he or she is having the summertime of their life!
TriStar/HCA Nursing and Healthcare Academy
June 6-10 (8:30 a.m.- 1:30 p.m.), 8th-12th grades. Presented by nursing, science and pharmacy faculty, students are exposed to basic nursing and health care skills such as CPR, basic first aid, EKG, AED and non-invasive measurements such as blood pressure and pulse. Students also tour a TriStar Medical Center. ($200)
CSI Academy: In Cold Blood
July 11–15 (8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.), 7th-12th grades. Blending science and intrigue, this academy challenges students to solve a “crime” as they learn about DNA technology, forensic analytics, atomic absorption, paper chromatography and gel electrophoresis. Students should come ready to have fun while learning! ($250)
Four camp choices in June, 8 to 18 years of age. For every kid who just can’t resist dismantling the toaster, Lipscomb’s weeklong Summer Science Academy includes four different opportunities to learn the mechanical, technical and electrical principles that make robots tick! Depending on the camp you choose for your child (based on age and experience), the fun includes current flow, circuitry, motors, axles and wheels, batteries, switches, actuators, sensors, microprocessors, algorithms, program design— and more ways to use engineering to solve problems! ($250-$500)
