This summer, we have created new virtual courses and camps for students who love Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. From the commodity of taking these courses and camps from home, students will be challenged to think outside the box, problem-solve, and build a strong math and science foundation.
June 15 – June 26 (2 weeks)
9:00am – 10:00am

This camp offers the opportunity to engage in math discourse, practice previously learning skills, and new concepts. Potential topics to be covered includes: problem solving strategies, thinking about mathematically critically, learning the components of engaging in conversation while explaining one's ideas, problems promoting algebraic thinking, and maintaining number sense through basic math facts. Students will engage in group work during the one-hour Zoom session and will be provided minimal work outside of the Zoom session for the next class. Work will be differentiated based on the needs of the students and will be tailored to meet their learning goals.

This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of computer science designed to teach students computational thinking, problem solving, and programming concepts. This is a for-credit class equivalent to one semester of high school programming. Emphasis will be placed on sequencing, loops, conditionals, variables, functions, and debugging. No prior knowledge of programming is assumed.

Have you ever watched a stop motion animation film and wondered just how they did it? Now is your chance to experience it for yourself! We'll watch parts from some famous stop motion videos, and learn about the complex jobs that the animators have. The students will plan their own videos, create characters, backdrops, props, and create their masterpiece using a stop motion iPad app. They'll work with a variety of materials, learn basic editing skills on the iPad, and work collaboratively with others. This camp will have an asynchronous format. Each day, you will receive a set of Google Slides that contain instructions and tutorials for that day's project. Individual check-ins and office hours will be part of the class experience.

NU Option is a long-standing dual enrollment program between Roycemore and Northwestern University that provides Roycemore Upper School students with the opportunities to take classes at the University for college credit. Once a student completes all prerequisite coursework available in a certain subject area at Roycemore, they can apply to take the next course in the sequence at Northwestern. Courses are available in most subject areas. Roycemore is an independent school in Evanston that charges students annual tuition. However, when a student is accepted into the NU Option program, their annual tuition covers any classes they take at Northwestern.
