From page A3 | April 18, 2014 |

Registration for Explorit’s popular Summer Science Camps is off to a roaring start.
Camps are filling up, so register now to secure a spot in your first choice. For 10 weeks this summer, Explorit’s facility in Mace Ranch Park, 3141 Fifth St., will be home base for a variety of inquiry-based, hands-on science explorations by budding young scientists from preschoolers to next year’s fifth-graders. Register online at www.explorit.org or call Explorit at 530-756-0191.

Over 12 years old? Join the summer team of volunteers who assist Explorit’s educational staff and help guide campers on their voyages of discovery. If you would like to volunteer for Summer Science Camp or any of Explorit’s other programs, you can fill out an online application at www.explorit.org/volunteer or pick up an application from the office.

Five thrilling topics await campers this year. Budding zoologists can explore locomotion in the animal kingdom, learning how different animals move, while junior astronomers will blast off to the stars. Chemists and physicists will be glued to discovering the forces that cause things to stick together. The wonders of water and the forces of temperature, weather and climate change will fascinate intrepid investigators.

As an added feature this year, Explorit is collaborating with the Discovery Museum Science and Space Center in Sacramento to provide special field trips for fifth-, sixth- and seventh-grade students. On Aug. 6, students can experience a simulated Challenger mission in the Discovery Museum’s Challenger Center. Tickets for the Challenger mission are available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/603005.

Chock-full of open-ended activities and individual experiments and explorations, Explorit’s Summer Science Camps tap into the natural curiosity of childhood and provide campers with the opportunity to make discoveries for themselves. With a morning-only or full-day option, there’s a camp to suit everyone. A full camp schedule and all the details are available for download at www.explorit.org.

As always, Explorit members receive a discount on camp prices. Other benefits of membership including free or reduced admission to more than 300 other science and technology centers around the world through the Association of Science and Technology Centers.
