Scott Family Amazeum Offers Mini Camp on January 16
Children ages 6 – 11 can investigate, create and explore extraordinary science when things get cold
BENTONVILLE, Ark. (Jan. 4, 2017) — Children out of school on January 16 can take advantage of the Scott Family Amazeum’s first Mini Camp, I.C.E: Investigating, Creating and Exploring All Things Frozen. From 9 am until 3 pm, kids age 6 to 11 years can spend the day engaged in STEAM activities focused on what happens in the cold.
“Mini Camps are a great opportunity for young learners to expand their horizons when it comes to STEAM – science, technology, engineering, art and math,” said Mindy Porter, director of education at the Amazeum. “For our first Mini Camp, we’re leveraging the cold, like the winter season, to explore several different concepts throughout the day.”
Participants will engage in a number of activities involving ice and chilled states, including working with ice sculptures, ice balloons and dry ice. Activities will be facilitated by experienced Amazeum educators.
Advanced registration and payment are required, and can be made by visiting amazeum.org and choosing Camps from the Events & Programs tab. Cost for non-members is $70 per child, $60 per child for member families. Participants will need to bring their own nut-free lunch.
Mini Camp is a great opportunity to try on an Amazeum learning experience in preparation for Spring Break Camp in March and a full schedule of week-long camps beginning in June. Those registrations will begin soon, but more information is available at amazeum.org.
