Summer Fun With Camps At The MOST

Community

The Museum of Science and Technology is offering a variety of summer camps for kids to learn about science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

For the week of the Fourth of July, the MOST is holding one-day camps, each on a different topic, according to MOST President Lauren Kochian. There are also three week-long camps which focus on certain disciplines, from chemistry to forensics.

An example of what kids will be learning in the chemistry camp is how to make a lava lamp. Assistant Director of Programming Emily Stewart laid out the materials needed and steps to follow.

In a clear bottle, combine one part water and four parts vegetable oil. Add food coloring to the container, which will create the “lava” to flow around the lamp. Finally, drop an alka seltzer tablet into the mixture and watch as bubbles of food coloring rise to the top and then slowly begin to fall back down.

Other camps allow kids to explore what it’s like being a doctor, computer scientist or marine biologist.

The camp day goes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is open to kids ages six to 12. To learn more, visit MOST.org.
