The Hillsdale College Summer Mathematics Camp explores the use of mathematics in cryptology (codes), probability, symmetry, and the fourth dimension. Activities include making and cracking codes, experimental estimation of Pi, and analyzing games and puzzles.
The science camps seek to promote scientific literacy among rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. These camps are designed to instill a deeper appreciation of what science is about, the idea that science can be challenging as well as fun, and the idea that science is both exciting and practical.
Having attended a camp, students will come away with the view that today's science is an interdisciplinary and cooperative endeavor. In sponsoring these camps, Hillsdale College hopes that many students will want to pursue careers in science and choose to major in one of these fields in college.
