Primary ‘Explore the World’ and Middle School ‘STEAM’ Programs for Summer 2024!
 

NIS is excited to offer two weeks of fun-based learning during Summer 2024! This year’s Summer Program will provide an opportunity for Kindergarten to Grade 4 children to experience a variety of different countries around the world, and for Grade 5 to 8 children to explore the fascinating worlds of science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Our programs will offer hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences that will challenge and inspire your child to think creatively and critically. Students will have the opportunity to build their own confidence while collaborating with peers.
 
The goals for the 2024 Summer Program are to foster greater global understanding among our younger children, and to support the middle school students to gain important knowledge and skills in STEAM. For all ages, the daily activities will encourage children to develop confidence, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities in line with the NIS school mission.

On each day over the two weeks, children in the three age groups (Kindergarten, Grades 1+2, Grades 3+4) can express their language, artistic and physical skills while learning about a chosen country. 

Week 1 Countries:  Oceania and Eurasia  (Samoa, New Zealand, Indonesia, Ireland, Norway)
Week 2 Countries:  Africa and Americas  (Kenya, Morocco, Madagascar, Uruguay, Jamaica)
