AT YCIS, the pedagogy of Science Education is “learning by doing”. Kids learn Science concepts and drills through real life experience, which generate student-led learning experience and develop a deep interest in the subject. YCIS’s Inventor’s Workshop Summer Camp is perfect for kids who find STEAM fun and meaningful. Students will create, build, experiment, and learn theory. They will also read related storybooks, write STEAM journals, and create videos. They’ll make their own lava lamps, tornadoes in bottles, solar ovens, bee habitats, and more!
No audition is required for YCIS’s Broadway Musical Camp! This camp is tailored to build confidence, improve communication skills, and teach children perseverance, creative problem-solving, and the ability to focus — all great skills that will lead to classroom success. The Chinese language component just brings the camp to another level. In addition to a traditional performance art camp, campers at YCIS will also learn about famous Chinese legends, fairy tales, and fables while writing their own story for the stage. Supported by our experienced Chinese faculty, they’ll write a script, design their costumes, create props, and perform their own production!
Are you ready to adventure through the jungles of Central America, Western Africa, or Southeast Asia this summer? Explorers will dive into an interdisciplinary learning experience with a boost in language arts, science, biology, and arts. They’ll learn about wild animals, plants, and the habitats of the jungle while exploring different landforms, climates, and bodies of water. Based on the knowledge they learn, the young explorers will build gardens on our campus and create their own safari dioramas.
