Seedling Scientists: Summer Camps

Pollinator Power!

July 13 – 17 OR July 20 – 24

Pollination helps our world grow! Learn about some of our favorite pollinator pairs and how they get the job done.


This camp was collaboratively developed with Carnegie Mellon University researchers investigating how children learn from informal learning experiences like summer camps. As part of this collaboration, Phipps will share some of your camper’s participation data from camp activities. These activities were designed by Phipps educators and CMU researchers to help us answer our research questions about learning. Please contact cogdevlab.cmu@gmail.com for more information.
