2012 CSI Science Camp Dates and Theme

I am so excited for Science Camp this summer in the Magic Valley!  If you are like me, you will appreciate knowing the dates for both the teacher workshop portion of camp and the actual dates of camp in Burley and Twin Falls.  So I thought I would post this teaser and get all of you excited as well!

The theme this year is S.T.E.M. in Space.  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, so one major difference at camp this year will be an emphasis on more than science.  Kids and teachers will be building projects and measuring distances as well as learning about geology, astronomy, and biology.  Another minor change will be the ages of campers.  We are inviting 2-7 graders this year so that we can provide an opportunity for older kids to participate.

Teachers are a critical piece of our successful camp.  K12 teachers will attend a 2 day workshop before camp to review content and practice activities that will be done at camp, and they recieve a free credit from CSI, as well as some other great perks.

The Burley dates are in June.  The teacher workshop will be June 13 and 14.  The Camp will be June 18-21.

The Twin Falls dates are in July this year!  Teacher training will be July 11-12, and camp is July 16-20.

There is lots more to announce, but I will wait for another post to give more details.  Plan on a great experience for your kids this year!

Dr. Shropshire is scheduled to return for another great show!!  Lasers and lights and flaming tubes, oh my!
