Spring Break Camp 2021

Head to Toe
Join us for a week of Museum fun! Each day we’ll visit Museum exhibits, explore the outdoors, and use art projects, games, and experiments to dive into our topic for the week: the science of YOU! We’ll investigate the marvelous natural machinery of the human body. We’ll explore the architecture of our skeleton, the mechanics of our heart and lungs, the circuitry of our brains, and the chemical powerhouse of our digestive system! With our new-found knowledge, we will even imagine and build our own entirely new organism!

March 29 – April 2, 2021 from 9:00am – 3:00pm

We’ve designed the Museum Clubhouse for K-8th grade students enrolled in a remote learning program through their school. Our educators will provide in-person support with schoolwork, outdoor explorations, and grade-appropriate science activities. Join us for two, three, or four days a week. Classes will be limited to 10 students or fewer, with the same students and educators together for the entire session.

Museum Schoolhouse

The Museum of Life and Science created Museum Schoolhouse to introduce and bring together the love of science, nature, and technology. These weekday classes are available for ages 5-13 and aims to foster a community that is curious about nature and our environment and utilizes science as a tool for exploring it. We embrace the scientist in all of us to know ourselves, our community, and our world.
