UW-Parkside to Host Environmental Explorers Spring Break Camp for Young Teens
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside Professional and Continuing Education department, in Partnership with the College of Natural Health Sciences, is excited to host the Environmental Explorers spring break camp for young teens. This spring break camp's theme is “All About Water.” Activities will include learning about water chemistry, freshwater fish and glaciers.
This course will run April 11 through 13 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. It is open to students ages 11-14 years old. Registration is open now through April 7 and there are only 16 spots available. The cost is $199 per person.
With a mix of in and out of laboratory experiences, this camp encourages middle schoolers with a passion for the outdoors to investigate their surroundings. With activities based on geology, ecology, microscope use, dissection, and soil studies, the environment will be a new frontier for your student's investigation.
In addition to preparing students for college by connecting them with UW-Parkside Faculty, this course will also help students to enhance their writing skills and expose them to new science topics through specialized workshops. There will also be a campus tour for those interested in attending college.
The mission of the Environmental Explorers Summer Camp held annually at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside is to provide an enriching educational experience for local middle school students interested in the natural sciences. The sessions are hands-on and take place outside, weather permitting. The week also features several field trips.
