Summer Science Camps

Registration Closed

10th & 11th Grade Camps

  • Indulge in a rich curriculum created by NCPA and NEBRASKA EPSCoR. In past years, students have worked with DNA, water science, food science, physics, engineering, robotics, solar energy, plant science, and nano science.
  • Interact with UNL faculty and learn about potential areas of study and related careers.
  • 10th graders explore UNL's City Campus, and 11th graders explore UNL's East Campus.
  • Live on campus for 3 days with other NCPA scholars from Grand Island and Omaha.

12th Grade Camps

  • All NCPA students are required to complete a capstone research project on the topic of their choosing during their senior year in high school. This camp will help you create a foundation for this capstone project.
  • UNL is known for its extensive dedication towards research in all areas on campus. We expect NCPA students to carry on this tradition. At camp, you will work with UNL library staff to explore available research opportunities and tools. The goal is to walk away with a capstone research topic and a basic understanding of research.
  • In addition, seniors will spend a couple days participating in the Ultimate Husker Weekend, a full campus open house program.
