About this Class

Building a strong foundation in critical thinking skills is the first step to becoming a STEM superstar! Whether you are looking to build a project for a science fair, explore an area of your own interest, or build critical thinking skills that will advance you in all subject areas, this camp is for you! In this camp, students will build their ability to critically think while exploring real-world applications of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

All Ivy Camps USA classes have a final project that students work towards throughout their time in their class. In this class, students will engage in an inquiry-based project on the scientific topic of their interest and present their findings to an audience.
