Spring Break, March 22-26

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is thrilled to provide an in-person, "Science is Everywhere" Spring Break Day Camps on March 22-26. Students K-7 can be enrolled in one or all days, and they will experience exciting science and fun activities at the museum from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm.

Monday, March 22: Surviving Zombies!

Join us as we engineer our way to surviving Zombies! Camper’s will dive into STEM challenges and learn how to use science to thrive and survive a zombie apocalypse!

Tuesday, March 23: Science in Wonderland

We can’t be late; we have a very important date! Camper’s will take the Red Queen challenge, help Rabbit race down the hole, and discover the wonderful world of science as we get set to adventure in Wonderland!

Wednesday, March 24: Sensational Senses

See, hear, taste, touch, and smell - our bodies can do some amazing things! Is it possible to see a sound? Can you taste with your nose and smell with your hair? Are two eyes better than one? Join us as we put our bodies to the test and explore our sensational senses!

Thursday, March 25: Enchanted Engineering

What if we save the princess, beat the dragon, or overcome the Troll in new and different ways? Could the three Billy Goats go around the Troll? Could Rapunzel have a different way to have visitors come to her tower? Join us we think beyond “happily ever after” and “once upon a time” and explore the enchantment of science to solve the challenges in these familiar tales!

Friday, March 26: Fun in the Sun!

Join us for a center of the Solar System sun camp! Camper’s will harness the sun’s power to create art with sun-sensitive paper and treats with s’more solar ovens. Unravel the mysteries of time with sundials and explore the properties of ultraviolet light with UV sensitive beads. There’re so many ways to have fun in the sun!
