    DaVinci Camp was initiated to address educational gaps for Latino students. Would you please forward this to your membership as soon as possible?


    Hi friends,


    Douglas Varela (DaVinci Camp founder) will be holding an informational session March 12th at 5:00 pm at our home at 3049 Hopeton Rd La Crescenta CA 91214 to discuss details about session 1 (June 10-JUne 29) and session 2 (June 22-July 11) to be held this summer 2017 at and near CalTech in Pasadena, CA.


    The Summer Institute consists of three-week all-day sessions that seamlessly integrate social and academic components from the arts and applied sciences. The program is designed to develop the interests and abilities of talented and highly motivated middle school and high school students (rising 6th – 12th grades).


    The camp activities blend mathematics, engineering, science, and art instruction in the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci’s concept of a Renaissance scholar. Hands-on workshops and a mix of other activities reinforce instruction while balancing the students’ day. Students engage their entire analytical and creative potentials in a fast-paced academic environment while meeting others who share their interests and abilities. By having the camp at world-renowned academic institutions, we provide our students the opportunity to experience life on college campuses while getting to know Alumni from Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, and Caltech who lead the program and expose students to the world of possibilities and opportunities that await them.


    During the program, we emphasize the development of the child’s ability to think critically and work collaboratively with peers. Students learn the skills necessary to understand complex math expressions and to reduce them to their fundamental parts. They learn techniques that make them faster problem solvers. Course assignments include problems with varying degrees of complexity to ensure each participant’s success. Students are encouraged to have fun while learning and to especially learn while having fun. DaVinci Camp engages the whole student and aims their imagination towards the discovery of their diverse talents.


    The following represents a sample of previous years’ activities:


    Visiting NASA JPL, NASA Ames Research Center and Lawrence Livermore National Labs

    Touring Caltech, Stanford, UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco campuses and laboratories

    Learning at Archetype Press at ArtCenter College of Design and at the Getty Research Institute

    Visiting Dino Lab at the Natural History Museum and Chabot Observatory Star Party

    Attending performances by the SF Ballet and Opera, SF Symphony, and LA Philharmonic

    Learning Brazilian batucada along with salsa, samba and flamenco dancing

    Hiking in the Inyo National Forest and Devil’s Postpile National Monument

    Catching a Pageant of the Masters, Shakespeare and other theatrical performances

    Please RSVP for this informational session. If you cannot make this informational session but still want information about the camp, please let me know.

    Thanks

    Hello there, HOLA!

    I’m Samuel Douek, director with Hola Mexico Film Festival. We’re looking to partner with nonprofit organizations for our festival coming in May 2016. Someone in our community told us about Vecinos and we see that some parts of your mission line up to our activities. We would love to chat with you to see any potential opportunities.
