About QuantumCamp


QuantumCamp is a growing school enterprise with a core mission of delivering amazing, hands-on math and science courses to kids in three platforms: QC In-School Labs, Homeschool Hubs, and Summer Camps.    

Schools around the world are partnering with QuantumCamp and directly incorporating our unparalleled library of science and math courses.    

In QC courses, students forge their own profound connection to our universe through carefully constructed lab sequences, which facilitate hands-on journeys through amazing math and science ideas.   

In this radical approach, we place kids in history, just before new knowledge was discovered. We set them free pursuing this new knowledge for themselves. All of science and math, then, becomes theirs. Each student is a shared owner of all the profound ideas in math and science.   

QuantumCamp has built 54 courses spanning 12 grade levels totaling over 1,600 hours of hands-on content, each of which is an arc of experiments and activities which draw students into the grandeur of an idea to be discovered.
