Planetary Boot Camp

High School Summer Science Institute

Jumpstart your brain before the school year begins with Planetary Boot Camp—a one-week experience for high school students to explore Earth Science at AMNH! Spend a week working with future science teachers learning how to use the Museum to explore Planet Earth. You will get to give your teachers feedback each day, and in the process, learn how rocks tell stories about our changing planet. Each day you will explore an aspect of our planet through interactive activities and exhibit investigations. Learn geology, share feedback with new teachers and close out the summer with science!
