CLEVELAND (November 6, 2017) – Get the kids out of the house over winter break this year and down to a Camp Curiosity science day camp at Great Lakes Science Center!

All year long we encourage our visitors to stay curious, and now we’re applying that inquisitive spirit to our science day camps, starting with this coming season’s winter break sessions. Kicking off on Wednesday, December 21, we have seven different themes over nine days for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade to choose from, featuring everything from LEGOs to chemistry, and forensics to robots!

All camps are separated by age, and curriculum content is tailored to the age group. Your camper can choose one day of adventure or multiple days for a STEM filled journey during their winter school break. Campers can experiment with chemical reactions, practice problem-solving with robots and LEGOs, solve a mystery, build a rocket, learn how bridges are made or explore the night sky in the STARLAB Planetarium!

This year’s camps include:

LEGO: Problem Solver -- Thursday, December 21
Chemistry -- Friday, December 22
Forensics – Wednesday, December 27
Rocketry – Thursday, December 28
Everyday Engineer – Friday, December 29
Robots – Tuesday, January 2
Outer Space – Wednesday, January 3
Chemistry – Thursday, January 4
LEGO: Problem Solver – Friday, January 5

School break camps are $55 per day ($50 for Science Center members) and run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with an option for an extended day from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for an additional fee. Registration is available online at or by calling 216-621-2400.

(Editor’s note: The Science Center’s fall/winter operating schedule is Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed on Mondays and during all home Browns games.)
