It’s summer … it’s X-Science Camp …

It’s summer…which means that while our engineering and graduate students are leaving campus, a different population takes over — and yes, that in addition to our campus wildlife:

This week, Ecole Polytechnique is playing host to a high-school-science-camp — roughly speaking, welcoming 40 or so high-school students in the break between their sophmore and senior year for a week of science-fun.

To be fair, though, when we write “science” we do really mean mathematics — and then, we call on our engineering students, and faculty, to try to make it fun through animating workshops, and organizing problem-based learning.

Welcome to all our high-school guests (and, we hope, future students?)!
