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 activities set up for campers who are between 7-10 years old at time of registration. The activities develop inquiry and design skills through engineering challenges.
KEEPERS℠ campers will be divided into two separate groups: Grades 2-3 and Grades 4-5.
Matt Endrizzi, science teacher at Dover 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.
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.
