West Hills College Coalinga is now accepting applications for its annual Chevron Fun Physical Science Camp. Three camps will be held: one in Coalinga, one in Huron and one in Mendota. Applications for all three camps must be received by May 3.
The free camps are geared toward elementary school students. They will focus on hands-on physical science with the goal of encouraging the students to explore STEM fields: science, technology, engineering and math.
“The past 5 summers, Chevron Fun Physical Science Camp has been introducing elementary students from the West Side of our Central Valley an opportunity to learn about Physical Science and engaging students with hands-on STEM activities,” said Zach Soto, Director of MESA at WHCC. “We’re grateful to the generosity of Chevron for continually sponsoring these camps and giving Central Valley students a chance to learn how fun science and technology can be.”
The Coalinga camp will be held on the West Hills College Coalinga campus and feature three sessions from June 24 to July 12.
Camp 1 will run from June 24 to June 28 and be for 6th and 7th graders. Camp 2 will run from July 1 to July 5 and be for 4th and 5th graders. Camp 3 will run from July 8 to July 12 and be for 2nd and 3rd grade students. All camps will run Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Seats are limited so parents are urged to sign students up now. Students will be selected by drawing and only 20 students will be accepted for each camp.
