It's a strange time to be a New York City schoolkid to be sure, but in hopes that brighter days are on the horizon, New York City's Department of Education is accepting applications for its Summer in the City program, which includes FREE STEAM summer camps and summer enrichment programs, plus internships and college-level courses for high schoolers. Don't delay: Applications for all programs are due Friday, April 10. The popular annual summer day camps are available to NYC kids entering kindergarten through grade 12 in September.
The camps take place at almost two dozen popular NYC institutions known for STEAM programming, including zoos, museums, and botanical gardens. Public, charter, and home school students in NYC may all apply. We should caution, however, that with most things in NYC these days, there's no telling how the coronavirus will affect the programming, but, since there's no cost to apply, and we're all stuck at home, you've got very little to lose.
