About the Camp Instructors

  • The camp is sponsored by the ISU Center for Science Education. Elementary education students, in the process of completing the Center's science methods course, will serve as the instructors of the camp.  
  • The student instructors will be supervised and mentored by licensed teachers. Additional direction and supervision will be provided by Dr. Eulsun Seung, the instructor of the science methods course, SCED 393/SCED 393L.
  • The education majors and other persons working with the camp have passed criminal background checks.


  • The camp will meet in the Science Building. Rooms will be assigned at a later time.


  • While summer science camp is in session, children should be dropped off and picked up from a central location.  The location will be at Lot 11, in front of the Hines and Jones dormitories off of 5th Street (map).  The drop off time will be between 7:45 a.m. and 7:55 a.m. each morning. Your children will be escorted, by University students, from the central location to their classroom in the Science Building.  Any child arriving late will need to be escorted to the Science Building by a parent or guardian.  Pickup time by the parents should be 11:45 a.m. - 11:55 a.m.
