Problem and Solution
Identify a problem at SigmaCamp and propose a solution for it that we could implement in 2019
Math and Science
SigmaCamp is a math and science camp. Please share your math/science interests, achievements, and aspirations. If you have competed in math/science contests you are welcome to share your results.
Your interests, and what is "role model"?
1) One thing that's great about Sigma is the diversity of interests, talents, hobbies. What are yours, what which may you wish to bring to Sigma? 2) What, in your opinion, does it mean for a counselor to be a role model for the campers?
Workshop Ideas
All counselors at Sigma are responsible for running a workshop. Propose a few workshop ideas in the spaces below. For each workshop, compose an abridged "lesson plan": What will you be doing? What topics will you cover? What materials will you need (if applicable)? What makes you qualified to teach it? What makes the topic interesting? It is encouraged that your workshop proposals focus on favor of science/math/engineering, rather than "crafts".
Something New
What could be added to SigmaCamp to make it a better program? Your proposal should be realistic, with consideration for the many organizational limitations.
What can YOU do?
Is there any particular job (outside of direct counselor responsibilities) that you would enjoy doing at Sigma? Perhaps it is one that has not yet been invented..
