Grades 7 to 9

This camp is for you if you...


☑️ Like science          

☑️ Have an interest in research          

☑️ Are interested in the brain



Learn about the brain while taking care of it!


In order to offer students a safe and stimulating environment our Labs have moved online. With a continued focus on neuroscience and understanding the brain, we will offer students the opportunity to develop their lab skills through the use of a virtual animal model, to learn about lab design and experimentation.


Our Explorers (Grade 7, 8, 9) will develop their lab techniques, to develop an appreciation for the research process and develop critical thinking and design skills for a greater understanding of how science is applied.


Campers will have the opportunity to work with a university-level neuroscience software to design their project. They will be co-learning neuroscience concepts, conducting experiments, participating in brain training games in breakout rooms to further extend their learning. In addition to our daily programming, students will also be learning about the impact of mindfulness techniques and find ones that they can incorporate into their daily routine.

Who are the people who bring about great changes in our world? How do they do it? Inspired by Getting Beyond Better, the book by Roger L. Martin and Sally R. Osberg, participants in the I-Think Summer Institute will explore the mindsets and tools of social entrepreneurs. These inspiring leaders—call them disrupters, visionaries, or change makers—develop, build, and scale their solutions to bring about truly lasting social change. But to succeed in bringing about that change requires a different kind of thinking. I-Think offers students who really want to change the world the opportunity to learn to think like a social entrepreneur and apply Integrative Thinking to a real-world challenge.
