# SigmaCamp 2023 Academic Program

We have a very intensive scientific program at Sigma Camp, covering math, science (biology, chemistry, physics, computer science...), and engineering (microprocessors, robotics,...).

### Semilabs

The main part of our academic program are the **Semilabs**, where theoretical (Seminar) and practical (Lab) parts are combined into a 1.5-hour session. Each semilab is a course, running for the five days of camp. You will choose 2 semilabs to attend (one in the morning, the other, in the afternoon)

The list of Sigma 2023 semilabs can be found here

### Lectures

Every day after the first semilab, you will go to one of the day's **Lectures **– informal presentations given by actively working specialists in different areas of science and math. You will be able to choose between 3 or 4 different lectures that will all be running simultaneously. We encourage you to attend lectures from different disciplines – it might surprise you how tightly interconnected math, physics, chemistry, and biology are!

Please see the list of lectures at Sigma 2023 here: Lectures 2023.

### Sigma Tournament

The Sigma tournament is our traditional team problem-solving tournament, which features problems from Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Linguistics and Engineering.

### Workshops

We want to encourage you to explore a great variety of science and math topics – those you were always interested in, and those you never knew existed. In our workshops, you will get a chance to grow your own “Silicate Gardens”, learn the art of glass blowing, play math games with counselors, and launch your own rocket. Try a different workshop every day!

To give you a taste of the variety of workshops we prepare each year, here is a list of Workshops we had in SigmaCamp 2022.

### Junior Instructor Challenge and Experiment of the Day

We offer the campers a chance to share their knowledge with other campers. This year, as before, there will be two programs for this: Junior Instructor Challenge, in which campers lead workshops for other campers, and Experiment of the Day, in which campers demonstrate for the whole camp some science experiment they really like.
