|APPLICATIONS STILL AVAILABLE FOR TWO SOUTHEASTERN SCIENCE CAMPS
HAMMOND -- Applications are still being
accepted for two “Science Adventure” summer camps sponsored by Southeastern
Louisiana University’s College of Arts and Sciences.
“The Great Dinosaur Mystery” camp is scheduled
July 5-9, while “Space and Rocketry” will be held July 19-23.
The camps are open to children in grades 1?7.
Cost is $180 each, and hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., weekdays. Before and
after care is available for an extra $15 per day. Camp applications and
additional information are available from Linda Munchausen at 985-549-3935,
985-549-5126 (fax), or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students participating in “The Great Dinosaur
Mystery” will become “dinosaur detectives,” unearthing clues in a search
for a fossil treasure. The “wild chase through the natural sciences” will
include squid dissection, Sea?Monkeys, and a real meteorite.
In “Space and Rocketry” participants will
build and launch a solid?fueled Screamer model rocket and investigate the
mysteries of the solar system from the sands of Mars to the icy rings of
Saturn. Participants will explore the far reaches of space as they design
a Mars Rover, build a telescope and discover the dark secret of black holes.
