The Center for Earth & Space Science Education at TJC will offer a Spring Break Camp from 9 a.m. to noon Monday-Friday, March 11-15 at the science center.
Campers in grades 2 through 5 will explore the solar system and the planets, as well as the night sky and the constellations. They will also discover the science behind the changing seasons, and design and launch their own miniature rockets.
“This year’s camp incorporates planetarium shows with hands-on, interactive STEM learning experiences to engage and inspire students over their spring break,” said Dr. Beau Hartweg, TJC science center director.
Each day will feature a different theme:
• Monday – Learning the Night Sky
• Tuesday – Moons, Planets, and the Solar System
• Wednesday – Comets
• Thursday – Weather and Seasons
• Friday – Space Exploration and Rockets
Cost is $30 per day per child, and science enter members receive a 10-percent discount.
Space is limited, so early registration is recommended. Deadline to register is Wednesday, March 6.
The center is also open to the public during spring break, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday.
The science center is located at 1411 E. Lake St., on the TJC main campus. Parking is free.
