Become a Wildlife Biologist! Wildlife is all around us. You just have to pay attention and look no farther than your own backyard. Campers will discover the difference between native and non-native species, learn the classifications of different types of animals, identify common birds by their calls, and prepare for butterflies arriving in the Spring. Campers will also watch Backyard Wilderness in the OMNI Theater, meet some Science Spectrum resident critters, and take part in a wildlife scavenger hunt.

Let’s Do Chemistry!

Put on your safety glasses and let’s do chemistry! Students will be able to get hands-on with lots of experiments including ones that look at acids and bases, color changes, bubbles, and reactions that can cause differences in temperature. We will answer questions like: Why doesn’t dry ice melt? How can you see smells? And how can chemistry clean up pollution like an oil spill? Then, get ready for an explosion or two!
