Twilight Camp Highlights
Weird and Wacky Science was definitely a blast! Events for the week started with Raymond Mueller from the St. Louis Astronomical Society as our guest presenter for the nature area. Activities included Nerf guns, water bucket relay races, distances between planets (with toilet paper), parachutes and rocket spinner crafts, water blasters, chickpea wrist-rockets/blow darts, volcano building and eruptions, hands-on mineralogy and geology with playdoh, Astronaut training obstacle course, paper airplane building and testing, a Mars rover design station and balloon-powered boat launch. More events were planned, but the rain storms on Thursday cancelled the events. Thanks to Jacque Mattingly, Camp Director, and Matt Jackson, Program Director, for a great camp!!
