Carnegie Science Center is offering summer camps for kids


Last updated 4/11/2019 at 8:42am

Curious learners, born builders, naturalists, thrill seekers, and kids that won’t take no for an answer will thrive this year at Carnegie Science Center’s Summer Science Camps.

From robotics to astronomy and from zoology to video game design, Summer Science Camps offer awe-inspiring education for every interest, but are so much fun, kids don’t realize how much they’re absorbing. The new PPG Science Pavilion™ has enabled the Science Center to offer dozens of new topics and to have the resources to deliver on them. Plus, the camps allow your kids time to be physically active.

Inquisitive campers ages 4-18 step into the shoes of computer programmers, astronomers, scientists, and robotic engineers when they explore kitchen chemistry, solve puzzles in a real escape room, or investigate the amazing biology of Pittsburgh’s rivers.

Select camps also make use of BNY Mellon Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center, a digital fabrication laboratory. At Fab Lab camps, campers explore “maker” technologies and game design – and even get a chance to build a mini indoor drone.

In addition to the new themes, Two-Day Scout Mini-Camps will provide troops with the ability to carry out authentic science experiments. Scouts will venture out into the field to conduct water and soil sampling while measuring their data with Vernier sensors. Scouts attending complete all requirements for the Scouts BSA Chemistry, Soil and Water Conservation, Environmental Science, and Weather Merit badges, respectively.
