ACADEMIC WORKSHOPS


High School Placement Test (HSPT) Preparation

June 11-15, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
June 18-22, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

This test prep workshop is for current 7th seventh grade students, who will be 8th grade students in the fall of 2018.  Campers will work on test-taking strategies and review the five sections on the High School Placement Test (HSPT). On day one, students will take a practice assessment modeled after the HSPT to highlight specific areas that the student needs to work on. During the remainder of the week-long workshop, students will review all of the sections of the HSPT test – Verbal Skills, Math, Reading, Language, and Quantitative Skills. Some of the areas that will be emphasized during the course are time management, problem solving strategies, and content learning.

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) can be a daunting challenge to middle school students and a stressful part of the application process to an independent school. Let us take away some of the intimidation by preparing your child to do his or her best work on this important exam.

All students who register for either of the HSPT prep camps, will automatically be registered for the HSPT taking place at Brebeuf Jesuit on the Saturday after their week of camp.

The HSPT dates at Brebeuf Jesuit are: June 16 and June 23.


Biotechnology

June 11-15, 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

During this lab-intensive, exciting experience, students will isolate their DNA and wear it in a necklace, make bacteria glow, and run a DNA fingerprint to determine the identity of a criminal. Students will be introduced to biotechniques used in the study of genetics and biochemistry such as PCR, ELISA, vertical and horizontal gel electrophoresis, and column chromatography. This is a rare experience for middle school students – don’t miss this opportunity!


Crime Scene Investigation

June 18-22, 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Investigate a mock-murder scene by collecting and analyzing evidence. Students in this workshop will solve a murder by analyzing hair, fiber, ballistic, fingerprint, and blood evidence. They’ll even prepare and run a real DNA fingerprint to help figure out “who done it”! Students will use equipment such as microscopes, calipers, and gel electrophoresis chambers.


Escape Room

June 11-15, 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
June 18-22, 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

If you enjoy scavenger hunts, cracking codes, and working with others to solve puzzles against a clock, then you might have what it takes to Escape The Room! Escape Room is an exciting live-action game where participants use critical thinking, communication, and creativity as they work together to “escape” a themed room before the allotted time expires. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience an escape room, learn about different kinds of puzzles and code-cracking, then use their new-found knowledge to plan, design, and implement an escape room for fellow PREP@Brebeuf attendees and parents.

It’s an up and coming sport that requires teamwork and patience, and in no time, you will learn the basics and be on your way to improving your skills. Ultimate frisbee teaches kids “the spirit of the game” –the idea that sports should be played fairly and cooperatively, with the outcome being secondary to the sportsmanship and camaraderie that come first and foremost for all ultimate frisbee players. Campers will learn all the basic skills, from throwing and positioning on the field to full game play by the end of the week. Campers will be required to bring a white and a non-white shirt for game play.
