Welcome to the NIS Summer Program!
STEAM-Focused Summer Program for 2023!
NIS is excited to offer a one-week STEAM-focused Summer Program in 2023! This year’s Summer Program will provide an opportunity for your child to explore the fascinating worlds of science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Our program will offer hands-on, project-based learning experiences that will challenge and inspire your child to think creatively and critically. Students will have the opportunity to inquire while working with technology thinking tools to gain practical skills and collaborating with peers.
The goal for the 2023 Summer Program is to support your child to gain important knowledge and skills in STEAM, as well as develop confidence, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities.
During this week, each group will focus on a particular STEAM area:
- Grades 3-4: Engineering and Physics
- Grades 5-6: Material Science and Physics
- Grades 7-8: Engineering, Chemistry and Physics
Admission to the NIS Summer Program in 2023 is open to students age 8-14 (entering grade 3 through grade 8). Eligible students must be currently studying full-time in an international school (or school outside of Japan) which uses an English-based school curriculum AND also not enrolled in the Japanese school system. Participants for all sessions must submit a completed application form.
Of course, NIS will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation carefully and consider all facets of operation needed to successfully and safely implement the NIS Summer Program in the interest of health and safety of all participants. Parents need to know, of course, is that the reality is that the school cannot guarantee that students will not become infected, nor that the COVID-19 situation in Aichi doesn’t further deteriorate to the point that the government declares another state of emergency.
COVID-19 Cancellation Policy
In the case that the Summer Program is cancelled due to COVID-19 related circumstances, no online equivalent can be offered, and the school will reimburse parents for the unused days on a prorated per-day scale. For example, if the program were to be cancelled before the week started, 100% of the daily rate (i.e. the whole week) would be refunded. In the event that a COVID-19 related mid-week cancellation occurred, 80% of the unused days would be refunded, with the remaining 20% of income retained by the school in order to support non-recoverable operating expenses.
Thank you again for your application and understanding as we put the health and safety of our students and staff first. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Please read more information about our cancellation policy if a parent wishes to cancel HERE.
