Sensing The Cosmos is a one week-long summer program that is designed to expose middle school students to the exciting world of science, mathematics, and technology. Participants meet with various scientists to learn about their research, visit different academic departments & research labs on campus, and learn through intensive hands-on activities. Program instructors include Notre Dame faculty, staff, and graduate students from the Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biological Sciences, & Engineering Departments.
There are two separate sessions this year, July 8-12, 2013 and July 15-19, 2013, so students can choose the week that best fits their schedules. All sessions run Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will be held at the Jordan Hall of Science. This program is the successor to the Sensing our World series of summer STEM experiences for rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade students at the University of Notre Dame.
The cost of the program is $250. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. If you know of a student who might be interested in attending, please feel free to forward this information to them. Application deadline is May 15, 2013.
