Description

At URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, scientific inquiry meets fun! Girls and boys entering grades 5-10 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 just outside of Boston’s science and technology corridor on a pristine campus, 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 use professionally-developed curricula to guide campers in bringing to life the dreams that capture their imaginations. Using a hands-on, project-based approach, campers learn and create in a collaborative environment. Campers choose from one of eight primary tracks, or “workshops,” where they spend 2½ hours each day working on projects they design: Robotics, Video Game Design, Earth & Sky, Digital Film Production, Forensics, Web & Graphic Design, BioZone, and Programming & Coding.
