# SigmaCamp 2024: Academic Program

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

### Semilabs

The core of our academic program are **Semilabs**, where theoretical (Seminar) and practical (Lab) parts are combined into **a 1.5-hour session** every day. Each semilab course runs for five out of seven days of our camp. You will attend 2 semilabs during the program, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The list of **SigmaCamp 2024 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 specialists in different areas of math and science. You will be able to choose between 3 or 4 different lectures every day 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!

Full list of lectures will be posted later in June. Meanwhile, check the list of lectures at SigmaCamp 2023

### Sigma Tournament

The Sigma Tournament is a team problem-solving tournament that 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 SigmaCamp 2023 workshops

### 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.
