Community Outreach

Thanks for your interest in Science Camp. This program ended in 2011.

Science Camp occured at the Rivendell School System and was developed in conjunction with the science education experts of the Montshire Museum of Science in nearby Norwich, VT through an established collaboration between the Museum and the College.  Science Camp was a highly structured inquiry-based science program the content of which was correlated with Vermont and New Hampshire State Science Standards and grade level expectations. The camp was for grades 3 - 6.

The Office of Outreach, a component of the Office of the Provost, supports this effort. Nancy Serrell, an experienced science writer, heads the office whose charge is to coordinate and sustain programs for science outreach at Dartmouth.

In order to make improvements in the Science Camp Program from year to year, we have had an independent evaluator, Dr. Jane Kory, interview all participants and prepare yearly reports. The feedback and insight we have received via these annual, formative evaluations have been instrumental in helping us take the necessary steps to improve the program at each iteration.

The formative evaluations of Science Camp can be found here.
