We have been working closely with university officials regarding the current COVID-19 situation and after extensive deliberation, we have decided to cancel Science Matters camp for summer 2020 (June 1st-July 24th, 2020). This decision was extremely difficult but the health and safety of our campers and staff are of the utmost concern.


About Science Matters

Does your child like exploring the outdoors? Are they always taking things apart or love solving problems? Do your kids excel at math or science? If you found yourself answering yes to any of these questions or you have a rising first through eighth grade child who shows high interest or aptitude in science, math, or technology-related subjects, you should definitely send your child to Science Matters at Auburn University! They'll have a blast, and you'll feel great about positively contributing to your child's education during summer break!

Science Matters is a summer enrichment program for elementary students in rising grades 1-8 offering youngsters a supercharged science experience. The program allows participants to explore the world of science through real experiments, technology and art projects, and hands-on, make-n-take activities. During this action-packed program, kids can design and build, dabble in the art of chemistry, become a flight specialist, see amazing critters, and more! Camps are 7:45am-3:45pm. Tuition is $235 per week/child. Courses fill on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Program Fees Include: 

  • All materials
  • Experienced science instructors
  • Science Matters tote bag
  • Morning and afternoon snacks
  • Special Science Matters T-shirt
  • Exploratory Activities (exclusive on-campus science tours, local trips, and/or great demo shows)

*Course Descriptions, frequently asked questions and the student code of conduct can be found via links on the sidebar. Session enrollments are based on the rising grade level (the grade they will enter in August 2020)
