Transforming students into faster, more confident problem solvers
The Mission of DaVinci Camp is to promote academic excellence and to eliminate the achievement gap among Latino students. DaVinci Camp transforms students into faster, more confident problem solvers, through innovative math instruction that integrates engineering, science, and the fine and performing arts.
The DaVinci Camp Summer Institute consists of two, four-week all-day sessions that seamlessly integrate social and academic components from the arts and applied sciences. The program is designed to develop the interests and abilities of talented and highly motivated middle school and high school students (rising 6th– 11th grades).
