While the weather may be getting colder, it's the perfect time to begin thinking about your plans for the Summer of 2024!
Delbarton Summer Camps will be opening enrollment for the summer of 2024 on Monday, January 15, 2024. As always, you can enroll for summer courses, advanced credit courses, sports camp, or a combination of both!
Visit delbartonsummer.com for updates and beginning January 15, click on enroll and get your summer plans done early!
Delbarton Summer officially launched an updated website to kick off the new year.
This summer, Delbarton has physical and intellectual learning and skill-building. Our co-ed academic options include for-credit courses, skill-building like the Writing Workshop, SAT and ACT prep courses and other exciting opportunities.
Our sports camps allow young athletes to train with Green Wave coaches and athletes to sharpen their skills. This year, Delbarton Summer offers two new, all-girls sports camps for the first time ever! We welcome ambitious athletes in grades 5-9 who want to develop their skills in soccer and tennis. These two new camps are offered as 5-day, half-day camps. Session One is from July 17 to July 21, and Session Two is from July 24 to July 28.
Start the new year off right as camp registration begins on January 15, 2023 by visiting delbartonsummer.com.
Delbarton Summer has kicked off to a good start this year as Dr. Preethi Thomas teaches her summer students about circular motion. Advanced credit Physics is one of the many for-credit courses Delbarton offers each summer. The course is designed to introduce students to the fundamental concepts of physics. As the weeks unfold, students put these concepts into practice as they navigate a combination of computer lab-based learning, live lab demonstration, and lectures.
On July 12, the class began with a lecture on how circular motion works in physics: any object moving in a circular path has a centripetal force that allows the object to move toward a central focal point. For example, the class observed a flying pig to experience circular motion. Next, they used a tiny ball and raced it down a circular track. As the ball accelerated down the track, it gained speed and defied gravity to make it through the track without falling off the track.
To wrap up the lesson, Dr. Thomas directed her students outside as they performed a water bucket experiment. During this activity, students picked up the bucket and spun it around and around while the water stayed inside, thereby demonstrating how circular motion and forces work together to keep the water inside the bucket.
Well done to Dr. Thomas’ class of ambitious students for an innovative day in Physics! To find out more about Delbarton Summer Academic Programs, click here.
