The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will introduce new and exciting camps to the long list of educational and fun sessions taking place in the 2015 “Science is Everywhere” Summer Camp. Children ages 6 to 16 will experience the wonders of science in week-long science camps held May 26 through August 7, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
With a different theme for each week, 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 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 weeks of the camp online at nuclearmuseum.org.
“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 possible.”
Camps will include such topics as “Sci-Fi Squad,” “Movie Magic,” “Best Toy Ever,” “Fire and Ice,” “Spy Kids,” “Fact or Fairytale,” “The Great Game” and more. Campers will experience the classically popular camp “Rockets, Rockets, Rockets” where they will build and launch their very own rockets, and our older students will take their robotics skills to the next level in “Loboquest,” an advanced robotics camp offered in conjunction with the UNM School of Engineering.
Camp schedules are designed to be both highly educational and fun for all, and science campers learn from the professionals. All instructors are certified teachers and professionals in their fields, and a large majority of the youth volunteers and camp counselors are former campers themselves. Camp curriculums incorporate science standards in a fun and educational setting, uniquely incorporating the wonderful world of science into all camp activities. The campers’ experiences are also enhanced with visits from respected guest speakers and field trips to intriguing places.
Nearly 500 students will be welcomed this summer to “Science is Everywhere” Summer Camp 2015, where each week-long camp – serving approximately 20 campers each - starts on Monday morning and ends Friday afternoon.
