About Science Matters

Does your child like exploring the outdoors? Are they always taking things apart or love solving problems? Do your kids excel at math or science? If you found yourself answering yes to any of these questions or you have a rising first through an eighth-grade child who shows high interest or aptitude in science, math, or technology-related subjects, you should definitely send your child to Science Matters at Auburn University! They'll have a blast, and you'll feel great about positively contributing to your child's education during summer break!

Science Matters is a summer enrichment program for elementary students in rising grades 1-8 offering youngsters a supercharged science experience. The program allows participants to explore the world of science through real experiments, technology, and art projects, and hands-on, make-n-take activities. During this action-packed program, kids can design and build, dabble in the art of chemistry, become flight specialists, see amazing critters, and more! Camps are 7:45am-3:45pm. Tuition is $250 per week/child. Courses fill on a first-come-first-serve basis.

  • All materials
