2017 Summer Science Programs
Explorations (Maximum 14 seats per session)
Bergen County Academies is pleased to announce the return of our lab-based summer science programs, Nanotechnology Explorations and Modern Physics / Optics Explorations. Students can participate in each program; a separate fee is required. These programs are designed to introduce students to experimental physics and/or nanotechnology through hands-on activities.
Independent Research (Seating is limited and varies by program. See Program Information tab for more details.)
Students enrolled in Independent Research in Biology, with an established project, may work in the labs of Mrs. Donna Leonardi, Dr. Robert Pergolizzi, or Mrs. Alyssa Waldron.
Students enrolled in Independent Research in Nanotechnology, with an established project, may work in the lab of Dr. Deok-Yang Kim at the same time that Nanotechnology Explorations is also running.
Students enrolled in Independent Research in Agriscience, with an established project, may work in the lab of Ms. Claire Kennedy.
The research schedule can be as short as two weeks or as long as four weeks. Each research student must be pre-approved by their mentor before he or she applies. A specific schedule will be created by the student.
Programs are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and seats are only reserved once application, permission slip and payment are received by the Sumer Science Program Coordinator.
For specific information about each of the programs offered, please visit the page under Program Information in the menu to the left.
