9am-4pm

The cost for this program is $250.00

Activities: Each day of space explorers camp will focus on curriculum that emphasizes gaining an understanding of important scientific and math concepts rather than the memorization of facts. Our student assistants, faculty and master teachers will engage students in active exploration and experimentation. Using hands-on activities, guest speakers and lectures, this camp will examine issues and encourage creative, critical thinking, as well as scientific objectivity, skepticism, and curiosity. Examples of activities include but are not limited to, size and scale of the planets, viewing the sun through solar telescopes, rover construction, designing ways to eliminate or reduce light pollution and shows in the planetarium every day.
