Science Saves the Day at this year’s SCORE camp
Up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s “Science Saves the Day.” (Picture a Superman “S”)
That’s the theme this year of the SCORE (Science Camps Offer Rewarding Experiences) camp this year, to be held June 12-16.
The camp’s focus will be chemistry and physics, according to Dianne Radcliffe, Chase County Schools Education Foundation Board president.
The camp is held every two years, with the science focus changing each time.
The Foundation supports the camp financially, along with businesses, grants and donations.
Students in grades 1-6 will travel between a number of locations for their hands-on science experiences.
The day camps will be held at CCS, Champion Lake, Champion Youth Memorial Park west of the lake, Cox’s Ponds and Swinging Bridge Ranch.
Many scientists come together to educate the campers.
Wildlife Encounters of Gretna has been a guest of Good Morning America, Today, The Late Show with David Letterman and Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom.
By connecting the next generation with wildlife conservation and environmental education, it is hoped that compassion for animals and responsible use of natural resources will follow.
