Description

At URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, scientific inquiry meets fun! Campers entering grades 5-11 develop hypotheses, perform experiments, and test out new technologies in a supportive, vibrant Jewish community. Our campers ask big questions, and discover real answers.

Located at a pristine boarding school just outside of Boston’s science and technology corridor called Governor’s Academy, we offer a top-quality educational program along with access to the best and brightest minds in the Jewish science and technology community.

Our staff members create and use incredible curricula, created in partnership with education experts, to guide campers in bringing to life the questions that capture their imaginations. Using a hands-on, project-based approach, campers learn and create in a collaborative environment. Campers choose one primary track, or “Workshop,” where they spend a total of 2½ hours throughout each day, in addition to exploring the world through our amazing counselor-led chugim (electives) and outdoor recreational periods like Sababa and Kinesthetic Sciences. There’s no place quite like Sci-Tech!

Director

Jayme Dale Mallindine

Jayme has spent her career and education poking at the intersections between technology and community. Before coming to the URJ, Jayme was, at various points, the education coordinator for Temple Beth Shalom in Austin, TX, an afterschool program coordinator and summer camp director at Rhode Island for Community & Justice, a high school teacher for the JCC of Greater Rhode Island, an ethnographer studying religious communities who used video games as part of their religious practice, and a site lead for Girls Make Games and Girls Who Code, summer camps that teach middle and high school girls video game design and computer programming.

Jayme grew up in the Appalachian region of North Carolina, and dual-majored in Psychology and Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. She earned a Masters at the University of Texas at Austin after writing a dissertation on gender, environment, and communal memory in video games.

She also cultivates her own community of “broadbeans” on her website, GamingBroadly.com. There, she writes and podcasts about the ways people relate (or don’t relate) to games and the cultures surrounding them. She’s enthusiastic about sharing her love of technology and Judaism at her home at Sci-Tech Academy!
