FREDONIA - SUNY Fredonia's "Project PRIME" - Professional Resources in Mathematics Education - is offering a four-day camp called "Camp COMETS" - Creating Opportunities in Mathematics, Engineering, Technology and Science - for children going into sixth, seventh or eight grades.

The students will be taught by SUNY Fredonia faculty and follow a fun and creative program designed to advance their knowledge in math, engineering and science. The camp will run daily from Aug. 20 to 23 from 8 a.m. to noon in Thompson Hall on the Fredonia campus. The educational learning experience costs $60 for the week, however, there are a limited number of scholarships available.

"Children have the opportunity to participate in daily projects and laboratories that simulate 'real-world' situations that will stimulate their imaginative thinking and problem-solving abilities," Dr. Keary Howard, a professor of Mathematical Sciences at SUNY Fredonia and one of the directors of the camp, said.

A variety of faculty members from the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the College of Education will direct the camp. All of the counselors are New York State-certified mathematics teachers.
