Uncle Percy's Kids Camp begins this summer!
Lowell Observatory is pleased to offer our second Uncle Percy's Kids Camp during the summer of 2013. These activity-based, week-long day camps meet Monday through Friday from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M., with graduation and family activities on Friday evening.
The camps will be repeated throughout the summer so you can choose a date that best fits your schedule. Students will be divided into three separate groups based on grade level just completed (1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th). Each of these groups will be limited to 16 kids.
|June 10th-14th; (1st/2nd)||9 A.M. to 3 P.M.|
|June 10th-14th; (3rd/4th)||9 A.M. to 3 P.M.|

1st/2nd: The Solar System
5th/6th: Life on Other Worlds
The camps will cover all aspects of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math). Each camp will include a week long STEAM project that will greatly enhance campers competence in these areas. The camps will be filled with hands-on science activities and investigations. Campers will also have the opportunity to collect data with a telescope and will learn how to analyze the data and draw conclusions (this is a recent development and something we are very excited about!).
