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,...).


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


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.


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.
