This week, one of those camps is at the St. Joseph Catholic School’s gym in Salem. Campers from ages seven to 12 are exploring different branches of science on the way to becoming certified Jr. Mad Scientists, according to Mad Science director and chief mad scientist Christine Latino.
Engineering is not left out of the mix, nor is chemistry, as Latino said the campers learn about five branches of science during the course of the week-long camp.
“Research has shown that young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer,” said Latino. “Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer.”
