The wonder of science comes alive during The National WWII Museum's Summer Science Camp. Learn about the ingenuity and innovation of American victory in WWII through topics such as aeronautics, engineering, physics, biology and medicine. Campers will have hands-on opportunities with real WWII artifacts plus a special behind-the-scenes showing of the Museum's 4D experience: Beyond All Boundaries.
Each day campers will explore different WWII science challenges as well as different areas and resources of the Museum campus, both indoor and outdoor. During Summer Science Camp, campers will investigate the science of camouflage and experiment to develop a synthetic substitute to rubber or to make a floating boat out of Pykrete. Campers will also work on a week-long special project that they will show off and test on the final day of camp. Each day of camp will also feature time when campers may choose to pursue activities from a range of different subjects in which they are most interested.
There will be three Science Camp sessions. The first and second sessions will run from June 12–16 and June 19–23. Please attend only one session as subject matter is identical for each.
