The camps, themed “Truth in Fiction” for 2017, and are geared toward students from first through sixth grades and are limited to 18 children per age group per week. Grades 1-3 and 4-6 are grouped separately with age-appropriate activities facilitated by museum educators.
Children can explore the microscopic world of Ant-Man, the chemistry of Harry Potter, Oklahoma’s own Jurassic world, the science fiction of Star Wars and Star Trek, the science discoveries inside Pokemon, Peter Parker’s web of spiders, the space exploration of Guardians of the Galaxy, and more.
“This year’s slate of camps offers two completely unique weeks that never repeat a day. Our science educators have put together a spectacular program that is fun, exciting and offers awesome experiences that kids can only get at SMO,” Stone added.
Spring break camps are $225 per week for members and $250 per week for nonmembers. Pre-registration is required.
