Lexington Summer Science Program

LSSP 2019 is over! Thank you to everyone who participated.

LSSP is a summer program taught by nationally recognized alumni of the Lexington National Science Bowl team, including olympiad medalists. We will teach a variety of topics not covered in the usual curriculum that we have found useful or interesting to know, and do demos/labs to get kids excited about science.

It will run from 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday the week of August 19, near central Lexington. The cost is $300 for the week, and all profits will go towards furthering science education in the area. (You'll need to provide your own lunch.)


9:00 – 10:00 First lecture
10:00 – 11:00 Demonstration, lab, or project
11:00 – 12:00 Second lecture
12:00 – 1:00 Lunch, games (e.g. laser chess)
1:00 – 2:00 Problem solving practice, tournament
2:00 – 3:00 Third lecture
