Science will come to life at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History during the 2015 “Science is Everywhere” Spring Day Camp. Children ages 6 to 12 will experience the wonders of science in one-day sessions held March 30-April 3, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
With a different theme for each day, students have the opportunity to explore many facets of science and history through hands-on exploration and investigation. Engaging their imaginations, children enrolled in the day camps will create and learn the basic concepts of chemistry, physics and engineering while playing with different materials and experiments. Parents may register their children for individual days of the camp, or for the entire spring camp session.
“It is with great pride that we introduce a variety of new camps to our “Science is Everywhere” camp sessions,” said Jennifer Hayden, Director of PR & Marketing at the Museum. “Every camp has been masterfully created to provide students with the most engaging and enjoyable learning experience possilble.”
Camps will include such topics as “Star Struck,” “Voyage to the Deep Sea,” “Movie Magic,” “Play Ball,” “Spark Your Curiosity” and more. Campers will experience the silliness of science on April Fool’s day in “Silly Science” and report ‘live’ from the inside of a storm in “Storm Chasers.”
Registration is now open online, and more information can also be found by calling 505-245-2137, extension 103.
