SEE US Succeed!
Science Education Experience to help Underserved Students Succeed!
The SEE US Succeed! program is a two-week summer science camp program that provides hands-on, inquiry-based science investigations for Long Beach Unified K-5th grade students experiencing homelessness. The program is modeled after the Young Scientists' Camp.
This year we are partnering with one of LBUSD's partners, Smile Bright, in order to provide dental screening and vision screening for campers.
SEE US Succeed! is a joint venture between California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) and Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), supported by the CSULB Math/Science Teacher Initiative and individual and group donors.
As a result of COVID-19 and campus social distancing responses, SEE US Succeed! program will not be offered during summer 2021.
The camp takes place on the campus of California State University, Long Beach.
K-5th grade children experiencing homelessness or poverty in the Long Beach Unified School District are eligible for the SEE US Succeed! program.
Students not eligible for the SEE US Succeed! program can apply to attend Young Scientists' Camp, the tuition-based camp at CSULB during the same two weeks.
Recruitment for this program is done by school counselors. Applications are then reviewed and families notified of their acceptance.
Families will be notified as soon as possible. Students not accepted in the first round will be wait-listed and contacted in July if openings become available. Priority will be given to students who did not attend last year and to families with completed applications.
