SigmaCamp 2020

SigmaCamp is an overnight Science and Math camp for children ages 12 to 16. SigmaCamp 2020 will take place from August 16 to August 23 at the picturesque foothills covered with majestic pine trees on the shore of the beautiful lake at Silver Lake Camp and Conference Center, Sharon, Connecticut.

At SigmaCamp, students spend a week with other talented campers, who were interested in learning  about the exciting puzzles and mysteries of the world around you. They are guided by college students and graduate students from top US universities and taught by leading professors and scientists from Stony Brook University, Brookhaven National Lab, Yale, Stanford, and MIT. The days are filled with discussions of the most exciting topics in contemporary science; hands-on experiments; debates; and educational games.

Detailed program for SigmaCamp 2020 is not yet available, but it will be similar to the program of 2019, which can be found here.
