Spend Your February Break at Camp!


Many working parents are faced with a similar dilemma every February when mid-winter school break rolls around – what to do with their children during that week? This can be a very complex situation, with solutions ranging from some parents taking a vacation from work to infringing on the generosity of friends or relatives.   If you haven’t figured it out yet, we have a wonderful suggestion sure to impress you, and guaranteed to provide a fun and educational adventure for your child.

The New York Hall of Science, also known as NYSCI, is hosting a Design-Make-Play Innovation Camp for youngster’s grades 1 through 4 from February 15th through the 19th.   Participants in this weeklong camp will have access to NYSCI’s Design Lab exhibition area, where students are inspired to be creative thinkers and problem solvers.  They will explore electricity and create their own house powered 
by LED lights. They will design a device that would help them survive on a deserted island. And, they’ll investigate the principles of light, create shadow puppets, and explore gravity, air resistance and air pressure while designing devices that will be launched from 20 feet in the air.  If you have a youngster who loves science, or one that is curious about the world around him/her, then NYSCI’s camp is the place to be.  Sign up now, as space is limited.

Register online at nysci.org/clubs-camps-folio, call 718-699-0005 ext. 320 or email aware@nysci.org.  The fee is $375.00 for non-members, $350.00 for members, and includes a mid-morning snack and lunch.

NYSCI is a science museum located in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, only 15 minutes from The Alexander at Rego Center.  For a unique experience exploring concepts in science, technology and engineering through hands-on investigations check out other special programs and Innovation Camps available for children to enjoy.   Each Innovation Camp includes interactive activities; exhibit exploration, a student certificate and a free student membership.
