Located on-campus at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, KEEPERS℠ provides a one week, half-day camp experience involving hands-on, minds-on challenges set up for campers entering grades 2-5. The activities develop inquiry and design skills through engineering challenges.
This summer, we are dividing our KEEPERS℠ campers into two separate groups: Grades 2-3 and Grades 4-5.
Cost for our 2017 program: $185 (t-shirts are available for purchase for $10)
Matt Endrizzi, science teacher at Somersworth High School. As a teacher and former researcher, Matt sees KEEPERS℠ as a wonderful STEM camp: "The kids learn through experimentation as they ask questions, measure, calculate, design, and build." Matt will teach the Grades 4-5 group for 2017.
Abby Hatfield, physical science teacher and science dept. chair at Newmarket High School. What motivates them as teachers? "Observing a learning moment," says Abby. "It's what we look for." Abby will take 2017 off from teaching KEEPERS, as she and her husband are expecting a baby - Congrats!
Beth Sommers, Curriculum Integration and Extended Learning Coordinator at Greenland Central School. Beth was new to KEEPERS℠ in 2016 and taught the afternoon sessions of KEEPERS℠. Beth will teach the Grades 2-3 group for 2017. She also worked with our KEEPERS for Teachers program in 2016 which was a teacher professional development opportunity.
