Squash and Science/ Summer 2020/ July 26 – 31st

The Williams College Squash and Beyond program is excited that you’re thinking about the Squash and Science program for your children. As with other Squash and Beyond education programs, our philosophy remains the same; helping students improve their squash game while also promoting their passion for science in a fun environment. As part of the Squash and Science Camp participants will conduct chemical experiments every day in a Williams College laborators will demonstrate a series of chemical mysteries that will set the stage for the next day’s experiments

How does it work?

The program will run for six days (Sunday-Friday). Campers will take part in ten hours of science labs from 12 noon to 2 pm daily. None of the campers participating in the science class will miss out on any squash related activities and will attend all evening activities. There will be no homework assignments during the week.

The instructor:


Charles (Chip) Lovett, Ph.D. Since 1985, Professor Lovett has been a member of the Chemistry Department at Williams College, teaching a variety of courses including introductor of the Summer Science Program for science-oriented incoming Williams students from disadvantaged backgrounds since 1998. He also conducts a summer science program at Williams for 5th and 6th-grade students.

Participants in this education program will enjoy a normal squash camp experience as part of the squash session.
