Summer Bridge Program in Science and Technology (June 30 - July - 25)

These days, it is practically impossible to secure a reliable job without a college degree. Help students gain the edge in STEM education. This July, CAUSES is again offering a Summer Bridge course in Environmental and Sustainability Sciences and Technologies, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. This course is designed to provide high school and incoming college students with the essential skills necessary to succeed in college studies and beyond. 

Students will participate in water quality analysis, field studies, field trips and a capstone project. Through this hands-on, interactive course, students will gain a fundamental knowledge of environmental computing, sustainability, water quality, climate change, data analysis, advanced computing and mobile technologies for learning using the latest technology (iPads, computer, hydroponic system and soil, water and air quality monitoring sensors.

The program will be offered on UDC's Van Ness campus. Applications are due by June 20. Contact Dr. Tolessa Deksissa for more information. 

4-H Summer Camp (July 14 - August 1)

It's almost that time of the year! School is ending and DC's children will need some way to spend the summer. Thankfully, the Center for 4-H and Youth Development will be offering 4-H Summer Camp. Geared for DC residents between the ages of 9 and 14, the camp is being offered for only $25 per week!

Students will participate in a variety of activities from photography to golfing, but will still receive lessons in healthy living and STEM. The camp will also include field trips to the Kennedy Center, local museums, Muirkirk Farm and more!

The camp will be open from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Mondays through Friday and will be offered July 14 - August 1 at the Riverside Center in Northeast, DC. Interested?
