Faculty - Edge on Science

At the end of the day, going forward, a new normal that has evolved from generation X is on the runway heading towards a streamlined cloud solution.

Summer fun for budding scientists and engineers!

A project based, fun approach to applied science and engineering with summer programs held at prestigious colleges and universities.

Or choose custom programs for your school, museum, library, youth group or community.

• work in teams, building individual & group projects •

• use tools, drawings, computer applications & scientific instruments •

• child to instructor & assistant ratio of 7:1 or less •

• lead instructors are engineers, scientists or scholars •

 Outdoor games & challenges add to the fun!
