Camp groups will be limited to 10-12 students and will require face masks for all counselors and campers. “We are confident our comprehensive safety and physical distancing protocols will keep our campers, staff, and volunteers as safe as possible. Having our camps take place in our huge 4.5 acre air park ensures that there’s more than enough room for our campers while providing kids with an amazing, hands-on STEM experience.” stated Tom Jones, Executive Director. For families who would prefer to stay inside this summer, the Museum is also offering weekly online STEM camps focused on Minecraft programming.
The Mission to Mars Online STEM Camp starts June 15th and offers three different levels, Introductory ($25), Intermediate ($45), and Advanced ($65) programming. Campers ages 11-14 will learn the science of space exploration while building a complete mission-ready Mars colony using the Minecraft platform. Mission to Mars is a gamified learning project designed to teach valuable STEM lessons in a fun and dynamic Minecraft world. Tasked with instructor-led objectives, students will improve their 3-D building and design skills while working in a collaborative environment.
