Ten week summer STEM program for K-5 children with a curriculum designed and taught by Columbia University‐affiliated faculty and students (from Teachers College and School of Engineering and Applied Sciences). Weekly sessions follow themes such as biomedical engineering, structural design, and green energy. Each theme will be explored through different lenses of science. Each session will involve hands‐on experiments and will be “maker” focused. Children will leave HYPOTHEkids summer program with:

  • A love of science,
  • The feeling that they can do science and science is for them whether they are a girl or a boy,
  • The ability to think like a scientist, form a hypothesis, gather and sort data and form a conclusion,
  • A budding entrepreneurial spirit, as they make things and think about design and production.
  • A keepsake NYC-designed and made lab coat by our friends at fashion-tech company Thunderlily along with the badge associated with the week of camp they attend. Attend more weeks and earn more badges!
  • Location: Close to Columbia University and subway subway trains to 125th Street. Newly renovated Morningside Park Playground 123 is where we eat lunch and do outdoor science
  • Time: 8.30 AM – 5.30 PM
  • Ages: Kindergarten to Grade 6. Children are grouped by age and skill level.
  • Instructors: Scientist, engineers and educators from Columbia University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Teachers College plus interactive sessions led by guest science luminaries
  • Cost: $695 per week all inclusive. 10% sibling discount. Book two or more weeks and get 10% off the second, third, fourth week.
  • Financial aid will be available for families that can demonstrate need. Scholarship applications are available here.
  • Special early bird multi-week price: book 4 weeks or more at $595 per week.
