This full day Space Explorers Camp is for rising 5th-8th graders. Our theme for 2018 is From Earth to Space and Back! Campers can expect to have fun while learning about features that make our planet unique, as well as its place in our Solar System and the Universe. There will be lots of hands-on science activities, games, a guest speaker, a visit to JMU’s Science on a Sphere Theater, and at least two planetarium shows during the week. Activities include observing the Sun with solar telescopes, creating our own edible Moon phases, simulating Earth’s tectonic plate movements, building an earthquake-ready structure, a science-themed obstacle course, and rocket launches. Come explore with us!
