The Science of History

Exploring the connections between science and history

The Science of History camp is full for this year, but you can be added to the waiting list.

Develop your investigative and analytical skills in a hands-on, immersive environment, and learn how science has shaped the history of our world. Collaborate and compete with other teams as you analyze and develop skills that will grow your appreciation for the world around you.

At EDUcamp you’ll benefit from daily devotionals and Bible challenge sessions that will strengthen your faith and help you develop a strong biblical worldview. Camp instructors will demonstrate how you can glorify God by using each new skill.

Activities

  • Mix your own cement to make structures.
  • Apply forensics in investigating counterfeiting.
  • Manipulate grain for multiple uses.
  • Draft expansion models to trace the spread of disease.
  • Battle in water wars using historical scenarios.
  • Grow spiritually through devotions and Bible challenges.
