Scholarship funds improve access to Science Discovery Summer Camps at the Bell Museum
MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (05/04/2012) —More kids than ever have the chance to attend camp at the Bell Museum this year through scholarships with the generous support of the Minneapolis Foundation. Additionally, a partnership with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education’s Summer Academic Enrichment Program will offer scholarship stipends to qualifying students in grades 4-6. Applications are now being accepted for both scholarship programs for qualifying campers at www.bellmuseum.org/camps/ .
The Bell Museum of Natural History continues its long tradition of Science Discovery Day Camps, offering 18 one-week camps for children in grades Kindergarten through six beginning June 18 and running through August 31. The camps engage children in science through authentic objects and unforgettable learning experiences.
Bell Museum Science Discovery Day Camps are led by the museum education staff and give campers the opportunity to explore the University of Minnesota campus, meet university scientists and take part in recreational activities including swim trips to the University Aquatic Center.
“We are exposing campers to the university setting in a positive, tangible way that links learning and fun to post secondary aspirations,” said Shoghig Berberian, associate director of K-12 Education and Family Programs.
2012 marks the return of many popular camps from years past, as well as the debut of a new camp, “Engineering in Nature,” offered to campers in grades 4-6. Participants solve engineering problems found in nature and observe how plants and animals respond to these problems. Campers also will discover how we use nature’s ingenuity in our designs.
Other camps include “Earth, Cosmos and Beyond,” “Rot-O-Rama: a Celebration of Stinky Delights” and “Wild at Home: Nature in the City.”
A full list of camps as well as detailed registration information can be found online at: www.bellmuseum.org/camps/ .
The Bell Museum is part of the university’s College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, and strives to advance the quest to discover, document and understand life in its many forms and to inspire curiosity, delight and informed stewardship of the natural world.
