STEM Camp at Lichterman Nature Center (March 12-16, 2018)

Grab a lab coat and experiment nature at Lichterman Nature Center this Spring Break! Embrace the inner scientist with interactive activities combining nature walks and meeting live animals while participating in true experimental science.  Be a nutritionist and ration feedstuffs for animals.  Go farming for biofuels as an agricultural research scientist.  Discover the best ways to clean up after an oil spill.  Maneuver through mazes using dichotomous keys to identify skulls and leaves.  Make your own compost using real worms.  Meet a scientist from a different STEM field every day.  Create science fair boards with a team. Come over to the wild side of science and test that hypothesis!
