“Project SYNCERE (Supporting Youth’s Needs with Core Engineering Research Experiments) is the dream of three African American men who at an early age learned the power of education and technology.” Nationally SYNCERE has served more than 10,000 students since 2009, and this summer they will be continuing their work in Chicago!
For Middle Schoolers, Project SYNCERE runs full day, week long camps. Each week their program changes, with topics including Robotics, Water Filtration, and Amusement Park Design. These camps run every week from June 26th to August 4th–you can register for one week or register for them all. They keep fees low (the early bird rate is $250 a week, and you can apply for a discount based on family need). Generally registration and fees are due a couple of weeks before the particular camp you register for. The program takes place at Olive Harvey College, 10001 S. Woodlawn.
Project SYNCERE’s high school camp is free! This Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) camp run from July 3rd to August 11th at King College Prep, 4445 S. Drexel. Students will spend their time working on hands-on engineering projects. Register by Thursday, May 11th!
