My daughter is 13 and I'm looking at some of Ohio's wonderful summer institutes. One, for example, is the B-WISER summer camp at the College of Wooster. http://www3.wooster.edu/bwiser/ "students take a full curriculum with classes in chemistry, engineering, physics, life science, robotics and earth science. In the evening, prominent scientists share their enthusiasm in areas such as laser techniques, boomerangs, physics, and energy conservation. " The camp costs $$, I'd feel better about parting with it if my daughter could build off it toward HS credits.
