Hk Summer STEAM

Hk Summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) is a full-day summer enrichment program during which your HYPOTHEkid will conduct experiments, create projects, meet practicing scientists and engineers, and take trips based on the theme of the week!

Location: The program will be held at Corpus Christi, located on 121st between Broadway and Amsterdam directly behind Columbia University’s Teachers College. The Morningside Heights area is served by the A, B, C, D, and 1 subway lines.

Dates: 8 weekly themed sessions from July 10th to September 1st

Times: 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

See Sample Daily Schedule Here

Ages: Rising Kindergarten to Grade 5. Students are grouped together by the grade level they will be entering this fall.

Tuition: $695/week. 10% multi-week, or sibling discounts available. Register for four or more weeks before February 1st and receive our early-bird rate of $595 per week (not to be combined with multi-week or sibling discounts).

July 10-14

More than crunching numbers! Come to math week and expand your math tool-box as we measure, manipulate, and change the world of science. Using calculations to practice 3-D Modeling, experimental accuracy, and scientific computations our young scientist will enjoy seeing the ties between science and math. We’ll take a trip to The Museum of Mathematics where students will see math concepts come to life in hand-on exercises, games, puzzles, and experiments!

Chemistry MATTERs!

July 17-21

It’s in me, it’s in you, it’s in a sack of potatoes? Chemistry MATTERs is all about chemical matter. Young scientists will learn about the basic structure of some of the most complex molecules. These molecules are the building blocks of the living and non-living components of our world. Join us as we build and break down the chemical blocks of this world!

Under the Lens

July 24-28

Come close, look closer, even closer. Do you see it? Or are you too close? This week you’ll learn to see a whole new world, not visible to the naked eye. We’ll be exploring different types of bacteria, viruses, and microbes that help us daily!  BioBus will pay us a visit; scientists will get to board the bus and learn all about different types of microscopes and what they help us see.

Living Nature

July 31 – August 4

Come with us as we travel through the ecological world. Is it living? Is it non living? How do these systems work together? Make a hypothesis and come test it out. Come get your hands dirty as we explore the fresh air and rich dirt that’s apart of Living Nature. We’ll take a nature walk and explore the rewarding world of urban gardening at a local green space in Harlem.

My Body Alive

August 7-11

Atom to cell to tissue to organ to organ system to ….. HYPOTHEkid? Join us as we explore the many parts of the human body and other living organisms. If your young scientist has questions about how their body works, this is the week for them! We’ll journey through the nervous system, digestive system, and many other places inside our bodies. This week we’ll take a trip to the American Museum of Natural History.


August 14-18

Look up, look right, look left, look down. Have any questions? How does that train work? Why is there STEAM leaving that manhole? How did we build a bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey? Come explore the many sounds, sites, and inventions that make up NYC. This week our young scientist will become urban planners. Each of our scientists will explore the tools and systems necessary to build and maintain the complex streets of NYC.

Up & Away

August 21-25

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s an astronaut? How did that big spaceship defy gravity and end up in the farthest stretches of the universe. We will explore how so many different people, animals, and objects defy gravity. Come learn all about aviation from ornithologists, and aerospace engineers.

Code Connector

Aug. 28 – Sept. 1

There’s a new language, one that we understand but can’t quite speak. Come to Code Connector as we use this new language to make life a little simpler. Using coding, circuits, and technology, scientists will explore the ways these resources can help make a more efficient tomorrow.
