The AQ Science faculty are excited to host the AQ Saints Science Camp again this year, building on our tradition of offering creative, fun and interactive “hands-on” summer science programs. We seek to inspire campers with awe and wonder about the beauty and complexity of nature, and we also begin to plant the seeds of "service through science." Science is all around us, and we look forward to exploring scientific challenges with you, and finding answers to design and engineering questions. We especially look forward to welcoming our new "class" of campers to our brand-new and stunning state-of-the art science building, better known as the Albertus Magnus Hall of Science!
