Summer 2014 Online Sign-Up

 The University of Maine Physics Department is hosting it’s fourth Science Summer Camps season in 2014.  Each themed week of camp is designated for one of three age groups (grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8). The K-2 weeks have been completed, but we still have spaces available in each of the upcoming weeks of camp. The dates and themes of those weeks are as follows:

7/28 – 8/1:       Grades 3-5 Math and Art Camp

8/4 – 8/8:          Grades 6-8 Space and Energy Camp

Camp activities include visits to the Maynard F. Jordan Planetarium and Observatory, making liquid nitrogen ice cream, racing rubber band boats, building bridges, making kaleidoscopes, constructing bottle rockets, and attending the Mainely Physics Roadshow.  For more information on this year’s camp, please see our brochure below.
