We’ve added the “Recharged” to our name to emphasize our changing curriculum. We are excited to add courses that incorporate the use of equipment funded by the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and UPMC. These high-tech tools encourage critical thinking and problem solving strategies that give students a hands-on, advanced level, intensive STEM experience throughout the summer.
Online Registration is now OPEN for students completing grades 2—8. Costs are as follows: A three-day mini-program - $115; A five-day basic program - $155
Costs can be subsidized by financial aid if appropriate paperwork is provided by the family. Student scholarships are received from area businesses.
Online application forms should be completed by the parent. Once completed, we will communicate with your child's school district for eligibility input when school officials will be strongly encouraged to write specific comments regarding the student's eligibility for this program. In many cases, final determination of acceptance into the program is based on the school recommendation. Comments are always confidential. Application deadline to be considered for placement in the program is March 20th, 2019. For more information , including a list of our camps and classes offered, please visit www.iu08.org/atoms
