DSC Introduces Summer 2014 Camps and Online Registration

The Da Vinci Science Center has unveiled its Summer 2014 Camps schedule and has introduced web-enabled registration for families of students entering pre-K through eighth grade.

Families can register instantly from any computer, tablet, or smart phone on the web at davincisciencecenter.org/camps. Early Bird Registration through March 14, 2014, offers savings and web registrants will receive priority status in filling the camp sessions.

The Da Vinci Science Center has presented its Summer Camps since 1994. Its week-long day camps include morning sessions and afternoon sessions. Campers can be registered for a morning session, an afternoon session, or both on the same day.

New and refreshed sessions for the summer of 2014 offer campers opportunities to build robots, create and launch rockets, discover life in tropical jungles, investigate NASA data, develop unique inventions of their own, and create their own video games. Many of the 2014 camp sessions are inspired by the Da Vinci Science Center’s Year of Innovation and summer 2014 hosting of the feature exhibition Space: A Journey Into Our Future – which was created in collaboration with NASA.

The Da Vinci Science Center and The Baum School of Art in Allentown, Pa., also will present a full-day Dexter Baker Picking Up STEAM camp session for a second time in the summer of 2014. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics, and the session for students ages 10-13 highlights the connections between science and artistry. The session is named after former Air Products CEO Dexter Baker and is sponsored by community leaders Bob and Sandy Lovett. Registration for the Dexter Baker Picking Up STEAM Camp session will be conducted through The Baum School’s website at www.baumschool.org.
