A $500 scholarship towards future college tuition at Westminster College will be awarded to each student attending the Summer Science Splash Camp this year. Sponsored by the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and the II-VI Foundation, Westminster will host the residential camp for students entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade this fall. Two sessions will be available to choose from, July 9-14 or July 16-21. Registration for both sessions is available now at www.westminster.edu/sciencecamp.

“We are so grateful for this opportunity to partner with the II-VI Foundation and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation to share our passion for science with these young campers,” says Dr. Craig Caylor, associate professor of physics and camp director at Westminster College.

Campers do not need to have an advanced understanding of science to attend, but they are highly encouraged to be excited and motivated to learn. Cost per camper is $350 and includes a week of science instruction, lodging, meals, snacks, supervised activities, camp shirts and a variety of other prizes. (Total value of camp is in excess of $1,050!)

The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation works to encourage physical well-being, inspire teamwork, emphasize the value of education and provide essential life skills to young people in the community.

The II-VI Foundation’s mission is “to encourage and enable students to pursue a career in engineering, science and mathematics while maintaining a standard of excellence in that pursuit.”
