Young Scientists will Bust Myths and Launch Rockets this Winter Break

December 11, 2014

Science will come to life at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History during the 2014 “Science is Everywhere” Winter Day Camp. Children ages 6 to 12 will experience the wonders of science in one-day sessions held December 22, 23, 29, 30 and January 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

With a different theme each day, students have the opportunity to explore many facets of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through hands-on exploration and investigation. Engaging their imaginations, kids 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 winter camp session.

Camps will include such topics as “Myths Busted,” “Skyscraper School,” “Sci-Fi Squad,” “Rockets, Rockets, Rockets,” “Spy Kids” and many more. Campers will immerse themselves in the science of cold temperatures while exploring super cold substances in “Frozen: Below 32°F,” and they will expand their artistic horizons while exploring the science and math in art in “Science of Art & Design.”
