The Tyler Junior College Earth and Space Science Center will offer a Spring Break Camp from 9 a.m. to noon Monday-Friday, March 9-13.
Campers in grades 1 through 4 will explore the solar system and the planets, as well as journey to the moon in the center’s newly updated Hudnall Planetarium. They will also discover the science behind the changing seasons 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 – Exploring the Planets
• Tuesday – Journey to the Moon
• Wednesday – Space Rocks! Comets, Meteors and Asteroids
• Thursday – Weather and Seasons
• Friday – Space Exploration and Rockets
Cost is $30 per day per child, and science center members receive a 10 percent discount.
Space is limited, so early registration is recommended. Deadline to register is Wednesday, March 4.
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.
