Keystone Science School 2012 – The Summer of Legend!
The Keystone Science School is a science school that caters to young minds. Using nature and science to explore the environment around them, The Keystone Science School teaches kids to develop critical thinking skills. Don’t forget- someday the world will be run by our children, so it is extremely important to teach them these skills today in order to solve tomorrows problems. These skills lead to new environmental policies, engaged and educated citizens, and the leaders of the future… even future Presidents!
The Keystone Science School offers programs from day camps for young kids to residential camps for older kids. Campers learn about nature, science and their environment in a exciting and adventurous atmosphere. There are multitudes of different programs available based on interests, ages, and even overnight and expedition trips.
The Keystone Science School is part of the greater Keystone Center located in Keystone near the conference center. The Keystone Center is the foremost leader in executing the thoughts of Albert Einstein in bringing people together and using the collective knowledge and problem solving skills to help shape public policies. Robert W. Craig, The Keystone Center’s founder, put it this way, “In general, I believe it can be said that successes in one sector of policy conflict and deliberation led to our being invited into other problem areas. What has and still does distinguish The Keystone Center has been its ability to select and have at the table the best representatives of all parties at interest in a particular issue and to assure that the dialogues that emerge are kept honest by the discipline of the best science and technological knowledge underlying that issue.”
