Spring Parent Teacher Conference Camps

March 18th and 19th

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is thrilled to provide an in-person, "Science is Everywhere" Spring Parent/Teacher Conference Day Camps on March 18th and 19th. Students K-7 can be enrolled in one or both days, and they will experience exciting science and fun activities at the museum from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm.

March 18th: Do You Believe in Magic?

Join us as we challenge your thinking! Learn how to read minds. Astonish your friends with Speed calculations. Dazzle your audience with tricks and be amazed at the science behind the puzzles, the tricks, and the magic!

March 19th: Take the Lunar Challenge!

Step into an astronaut’s shoes to learn what life is like in an outpost on the moon. As members of our lunar research team, campers’ survival skills are tested as they repair a damaged power supply, use electrolysis to restore their oxygen reserve and extract water from the moon’s frozen surface. Life on the moon is a challenge … are you ready?

All camps are for grades Kindergarten through 7th grade. Our education team has divided camp topics into single-day camps that are multi-age collaborative camper experiences from 7:30 am-5:30 pm. Each in-person camp will maintain strict CDC safety protocols, with small camp ratios. All campers and staff must wear and pass a daily COVID-19 screening. Campers will need to bring a lunch, two snacks, and a refillable water bottle. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Guida, Education Director, at 505-245-2137, extension 101, by site cell phone at 505-333-9533, or at

Each camp is a full day camp for grades K-7. Pick up no later than 5:30 pm. $65/members and $70/non-members.
