STANFORD TEACHERS LED ACADEMIC CAMP!

HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM

Technology Shaping Today & Tomorrow: What students need to know

This course is led by accredited school teachers with MS Education from top universities such as Stanford.

As the pace of technology innovation accelerates, Bay Area students are left to rationalize new trends and jargon like the blockchain, green energy, and neural networks, and figure out how their work and learnings at school applies to it all.

In this 1-week program, students will get an in-depth crash course about how their everyday learning translates to understanding the technology that’s shaping our future. Each day, students will learn a new topic from a unique discipline and engage in group worthy tasks such as design challenges, projects, and games that call on skills and concepts students acquire in school to solidify their learnings. For each topic, students will walk away with a proficient vocabulary, robust mental model, and clear connections to school work.

Monday – Friday, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Week 1: 6/13 – 6/17

Week 2: 6/27 – 7/1

Week 3: 7/18 – 7/22

MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM

Math and engineering: A Summer series for future leaders

This course is led by accredited school teachers with MS Education from top universities such as Stanford.

In today’s ever-changing world, the ability to think critically about the application of science and math concepts has become increasingly valued both by universities and employers. One of the biggest challenges, though, that science and society currently face is the lack of interest around STEM fields. In this one week summer course, students will be reinvigorated to love science again, framed around engineering practical and accessible solutions to both local and global problems. Students will employ design thinking to master scientific inquiry, numeracy, and designing engineering solutions, in service of creating a culminating project in which students will be able to jump start their newfound interest.

Monday – Friday, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Week 1: 6/20 – 6/24

Week 2: 7/11 – 7/15

Week 3: 7/25 – 7/29

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROGRAM

Foundational Math and Engineering: The Joy of Building

This course is led by accredited school teachers with MS Education from top universities such as Stanford.

Our Lower Academy will be a summer of joyful learning through interesting and open-ended math tasks done in groups, and hands-on and fun engineering projects. We will work as a team on a special topic, solve multi-step math problems, and build friendships. Our hope is that students will leave each day dreaming of innovation and excited to improve their projects all the while with new friends and leadership skills. The open-ended project can be as simple or as complex, giving the students the freedom to dream and create in their optimal learning zone.  These moments over summer will revive and inspire our students to become the world’s future scientists, leaders and problem-solvers.

Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 12:00pm

Week 1 & 2: 6/20 – 7/1

Week 3 & 4: 7/18 – 7/29

MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS

Satoshi

Math & Science Camp Director

 

After a successful career in research and engineering, Satoshi decided to dedicate himself to education. He attended Stanford University and received his Masters in Science Education. 

Currently, Satoshi teaches physics and engineering at a local high school. He is particularly passionate about practicing research-based pedagogy that informs the process of identifying modalities best fit to the unique learning style of each student. 

His goal is to prepare students at all academic levels to be competitive in college and beyond. More importantly, he wants to instill in students the joy of learning and the desire to dive deeper into topics of interest.

DILLON

Hi, my name is Dillon, and I am currently a physics and math teacher at Menlo-Atherton High School.
 
I’ve always found that it’s incredibly rewarding to learn when you are doing something you enjoy, and that’s been my go-to motto for teaching: Make Learning Fun!
 
I like to incorporate hands-on projects with real-life scenarios, so that students get a chance to participate in the science and engineering we use in the real world.
 

CESAR

César is a science and math teacher in San Francisco. They completed their Masters in Science Education at Stanford University and degrees in Chemical Engineering and Neuroscience. 
 
César is passionate about developing curricula that centers holistic science pedagogy, engages students in science, and emphasizes science’s practices as a transformative agent.
 
César has a strong background in bioengineering research. In their research, César developed tools designed for students of all ages to access graduate-level research programming for relevant, project based-implementation. 

AMY

Amy grew up in a low income, immigrant household and was the first in her family to attend and graduate from college. With her background and experiences, she understands the importance of education and the immeasurable value of being a lifelong learner. Amy attended Stanford University and received her Masters in Mathematics Education. Currently, she teaches math at a middle school in San Francisco. 

Amy desires every student to confidently see themselves as brilliant math learners. Amy believes that math is about thinking deeply and slowly, asking “why?,” visually representing ideas, sharing conjectures, and deriving solutions using various methods. She is excited to encourage students to take risks and ask big questions because learning is social, and we are smarter together!

NATHAN

Nathan spent the past 7 summers teaching students in San Francisco.  He earned a Psychology with Biology Emphasis Degree at UC Davis and a Master’s Degree in Education at Stanford University. 

Nathan will be teaching first grade in Palo Alto this fall.  He focuses on utilizing research-based practices and engaging students to promote learning.  Nathan will be teaching the elementary students at our camp.
