SFI and the Groton School are offering a new two-week summer residential program for high school-aged students interested in exploring the tools and techniques of complexity science through hands-on ecological research. The Summer Complexity and Modeling Program (CAMP) is July 9-23, 2011, at the Groton School campus in Groton, Massachusetts.
The Santa Fe Institute – the birthplace of complexity science and education – and the Groton School – a leading college preparatory institution – are co-sponsoring the program. SFI has trained thousands of complexity scholars through science summer camps, school programs, and mentorships for 23 years.
Through computer modeling, field data, seminars and discussions led by leading complex systems scientists, and collaborations with other students, CAMP participants will conduct original research that unravels the complex relationships in the real-world ecological systems around them.
Days at Groton include a balance of instruction, small working group sessions, and research time combined with sports, outdoor activities, and field trips – including a visit to Boston, hiking on Mt. Monadnock, and a canoe expedition.
Scholarships are available based on need and merit.
