Help your child discover science! This camp will cover a broad range of science concepts that are exciting and interesting to young learners. Explorers will learn the vocabulary word of the day, observe a teacher demonstration of the concept, interact with peers to answer questions, and then will finally make their own project that highlights the concept and reinforces their learning. A new concept is presented each day. These concepts are independent from one another. No background...
