With all of the focus on testing and buzz words, do your students ever feel like they aren't really learning anything? What happened to those light-bulb moments? You know…the ones where they finally understood what they were being taught because they were doing something with it.

How will Berkeley incorporate STEAM into this year's Summer Camp?




We incorporate with curriculums provided by famous Science Museum, engage projects and activities, conjunct with the  Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS),  and pair them with the field trips  to museums around the bay area.

S1 Infinite and Beyond: Discovering Astronamy and Space. Daily hands-on science experiments, such as Cosmic Coincedence, Eclips in the Cup, Glue Stick Sunset, Scientilating Little Star,...

S2 Under the Sea: A Close Look at underwater world. Daily hands-on experiences, such as Saltwater Pentacell, Swelling Seas, Ocean Acidification in a Cup, Inverted Bottles,...

S3 Pioneer Living: Create a Map of Your Go to North. Daily science activities such as, Make your Own Rainsticks, Disappearing Acts, Poking Fun at Art, Where's North?, Light Wind, ..

S4 Food and Fitness: Commit to Stay Health, Focus and Strong this summer. Daily hands-on experiences, such as Bacteriopolis, Wait, Weight, Don't Tell Me, ...

Art can take form in many ways. 

                            “Where science ends, art begins.” -Charles Nègre 

Speech and Debate course is designed to help students learn the basics of public speaking and a structure of how to create an impromptu speech. We will start off by breaking them into smaller groups until ultimately they are able to perform their speech in front of the entire class. In the debate class, the students will learn how to create an arguement. We will first start off by teaching them the proper way of creating a claim, warrant, and impact which is the basis of debate. Every week students will get new topics to debate. The topics can range from metaphorical, politcal, abstract, or moral questions.
