We’ll take a voyage of
discovery into the atmosphere and beyond as we explore planets, moons, and other space
phenomena in our solar system. Things will heat up as we examine the sun and other stars
and discover the difficulties of space travel! Kids will get a firsthand experience of the
challenges of living in space as they try assemble a satellite while training to be an astronaut.
For added fun, we’ll learn about the various technologies that make space exploration possible
while bouncing lasers around the room! Kids will love to build their own Mad Science rocket,
and participate in a real “NASA” style rocket launch. Campers will have receive many cool
