Ohio State Newark invites Rising 5th – 8th Graders to be a Buckeye For a Week

March 11, 2019

Rising fifth through eighth grade students are invited to be a Buckeye for a week, June 17 - 21, at The Ohio State University at Newark. The upcoming summer enrichment camp will give students the opportunity to explore academic disciplines and the college experience through sessions with Ohio State Newark’s world-renowned professors in the campus’s state-of-the-art facilities.

Students who enroll at Ohio State Newark’s Summer Enrichment Camp will be exposed to many different academic disciplines ranging from English to political science, art to sociology and biology to physics. If you have a son or daughter entering grades 5, 6, 7 or 8 for the 2019 – 20 school year, you do not want to miss this opportunity! Our faculty will lead one-hour sessions such as Your Storied Past: Writing About Yourself”; “Ouch! That Hurts. The Pain of Exclusion”, “What’s For Dinner? Predator-Prey Interactions in Wild Coshocton”, “Fake News, Paul Revere & The Boston Massacre”, “Tell Me Your Name Without Saying a Word: A Lesson in Sign Language” and “How Elections Work.” Additionally, the students will spend half a day at The Works in downtown Newark as a faculty member helps them to explore space in the new SciDome.

These sessions will allow students to develop their own opinions, ideas, critical thinking skills; interact with college faculty; and much more. During this week at Ohio State Newark, students will also have the chance to dine in the university dining hall and learn more about college life from our students.
The Ohio State Newark Summer Enrichment Camp is $250 per student. Some need-based scholarships may be available. The camp begins daily at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m.
