Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Registration for the Museum of Science & Industry’s 2015 Summer Science Camps is now open. MOSI’s Summer Science Camps begin Monday, June 8, and registration is available at MOSI.org. Register before April 1 and receive 15 percent off camp registration fees.
MOSI’s Summer Science Camp brings science, technology, engineering, art and math (S.T.E.A.M.) alive through hands-on experiments and building projects. From building robots and launching rockets to making movies and snorkeling in natural springs, MOSI is all about creating the experiences that expand interests and make dreams a reality. Doing real science with the tools and technology used by professionals is just one of the ways MOSI Summer Science Camp inspires campers with a “can do” attitude that can last a lifetime. Real science coupled with exciting experiments, simulations, explorations and inventions will help campers discover the innovator within.
Designing video games, creating art with lasers, searching for fossils, using DNA to solve crimes and mixing up edible slime are just some of the thousands of Summer Science Camp experiences waiting for you.
For teens, MOSI’s S.T.E.A.M. Career Camps provide students the opportunity to explore careers that utilize S.T.E.A.M. skills through active, project-based experiences with the support of field experts and scientists. Through real-world experiences in a fun, thought-provoking environment, students will make discoveries about S.T.E.A.M. careers in addition to discoveries about their own interests. Attendees receive a S.T.E.A.M. Certificate of Achievement for successful completion of each of these camps.
Summer camp sessions are available to children in preschool through high school. Multiple week and multiple child discounts are available. Extended care and hot lunches are offered for an additional fee. For more information, class descriptions and prices, visit http://www.mosi.org.
