Days are getting longer, and soon the temperatures will be increasing here in the Northern hemisphere. Just about the right time to think of summer plans!
What will you do this summer?
The summers I most fondly remember were those that I spent in active (and sometimes even extreme) learning environments, in intensive summer schools. If you have not done one, you’re missing out on an amazing way to learn – intensive, hands-on, going beyond what you thought you could achieve, developing some life-long skills, and a few life-long friends.
Science Survival Kit Summer School (SSKSS)
If you are interested in STEM and in learning, consider joining us this summer in Croatia. Science Survival Kit Summer School is like no other – it’s the intensive 5-week long training for anyone who completed a high school, and wants to learn what science really is about. No lectures, no grades, no pressure to validate a year. But a lot of teamwork, personal challenges, online and project-based learning. And some summer, and sea, and sun.
What are we going to cover?
- basics of programming and electronics, to create new research tools, and analyze quantitative data
- basics of experimental work and simulations, to conduct small research projects
- basics of physics and chemistry concepts, to understand how they impact life on Earth
- basics of science communication, to share powerful ideas online and in person
- basics of teamwork and project management, to successfully lead projects you will propose with your peers
- basics of self- and peer-feedback, to develop new skills and learn how to learn
Is this summer school for you?
- Are you a student? Experience the world of research and prepare for your internships and career!
- Are you a teacher? Learn how to implement interdisciplinary science projects in your classroom!
- Are you a science communicator? Communicate about sustainable development through interdisciplinary projects!
- Are you a tinkerer? Learn how to create research tools and apply them in your projects!
- Are you an artist? Get inspired by nature and learn to communicate about science!
- Are you a life-long learner? Rediscover learning through collaborative projects and develop new skills!
Do you know what you want to do this summer?
Hoping to see you this summer in Croatia!
