Hear from a Project Scientist parent

Project scientist redefines summer camp — fun, academic, and innovative all in one space. My daughter found a passion she never knew existed within herself. Her confidence shines as she now sees the world from a new perspective, her scientific self!
— Matt, Project Scientist parent in Minnesota

Project scientist has helped my daughter define her love for learning and give a focus for her inquisitive mind. She tells everyone she meets that she is a scientist and invites them ask her anything because she can find the answer for them!
— Jen, Project Scientist parent in Minnesota
