CLEVELAND (November 19, 2019) – Don’t let your kids get frozen to the couch during their winter break from school this year! Bring them down to Camp Curiosity at Great Lakes Science Center for a hands-on day packed with interactive science camp activities!
Kicking off on Thursday, December 26, the Science Center has six different themes for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade to choose from, including LEGOs, robots, rockets, chemistry, engineering and physics! Camps run December 26, 27, 30, 31 and January 2, 3.
Campers can mix chemical concoctions, use LEGOs to explore the engineering behind carnivals, experiment with propulsion, play with polymers and more! All camps are separated by age, and camp activities are tailored for each age group. Your camper can choose one day of adventure, or do all six for a full-sized STEM winter break.
