Academically-motivated high school students are invited to apply for the Georgetown College Pre-college Academic Experience in Math and Science (PAEMS), a summer program scheduled for June 18 through June 30, 2017. All successful applicants will enjoy a college-like experience by living on campus in a dormitory that will be staffed by student resident assistants and supervised by faculty.

Sponsored by the College’s Natural Life and Science Division and now in its 27th year, this 13-day residential program gives students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades educational opportunities not currently available in secondary schools. It is for those who have an exceptional interest in mathematics and the natural sciences. Hands-on topics include astronomy, biology, chemistry, environmental science, mathematics, statistics, and computing. Laboratory experiences and field trips are included. And because summer is a time for fun several recreational activities are planned including cookouts.

PAEMS challenges students academically, stimulating their interests in math and science, fostering creativity, and promoting a team concept to problem-solving. No credit is offered. It is ‘fun while learning’ without the pressure of achieving a grade.
