Greetings, fellow astrophiles!
This in from the TACNY listserve.
The Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology has answered parental demand by offering its first February break day camp, called Expedition MOST (most.org/learn/vacation-camps/). Children ages 6 to 12 can spend their vacation learning about everything from nanotechnology to the vast universe.
Every day, museum educators will help campers explore a different STEM topic by taking an expedition to a different part of the MOST. Their day will be filled with games, science experiments, and even explosions.
The camp runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 20 to 24, 2017. The MOST will provide a healthy morning snack, but campers must bring a lunch that doesn’t need to be refrigerated or microwaved.
The camp costs $250 for MOST members and $280 for nonmembers, but additional children from the same family are half price. The registration deadline is Feb. 10 and space is limited, so interested parents should sign up soon.
You can register online at the MOST’s website. You can download a letter for parents and the registration packet at the site. Return the registration materials with a $50 deposit by Feb. 10 to keep a space for your child. The balance of the fee is due before the start of camp.
For more information, contact Cynthia Waibel via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 315-425-9068, extension 2141.
