Aztec Science Camp was conceived and developed by professors at San Diego State University and the Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education for the benefit of exposing kids to science and developing their curiosity about the world around them.

Students participating in this program explore science content aligned with the Disciplinary Core Ideas of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). They will also engage in NGSS Science and Engineering Practices as they plan and conduct investigations.

Aztec Science Camp Summer 2016

Aztec Science Camp 2016

From the SDSU Newscenter article Inspiring Future Scientists (August 12, 2016):

Nearly two dozen children are sitting around a large table inside a laboratory at San Diego State University waiting for the smoke to settle. Their eyes, protected by safety goggles, are trained on an orange cooler. Just minutes before, the kids blew up balloons and placed bets on how many of their balloons could fit inside the cooler.

“This isn’t happening,” shouts one child in disbelief as nearly half the balloons go inside the container. Another child simply exclaims “This is so cool!”

Welcome to Aztec Science Camp.
