The George Washington Carver Summer Scholars Program consists of three-four weeks of science activities and fun with a focus on water quality and watersheds.

Students who participate in the George Washington Carver Science Fair are also eligible to apply for the summer session held at The Academy of Natural Sciences.

Students learn about science and the environment by:

-Studying water and other environmental issues.
-Performing scientific experiments with the help of the Academy's scientists.
-Exploring the Academy's local and regional laboratories.
-Making trips to aquatic environments.
