June STEM Camp Attendees Participate in Mock-Up Crime Scene

STEM Camp (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) enjoyed by all 19 kids in attendance during the week of June 20-24 at the Perry Center for Emerging Technologies. Students especially enjoyed the CSI day. The kids were asked to investigate a mock-up crime scene and to analyze any fingerprints or evidence found at the scene.

Also included in the week’s activities were building and launching rockets, 3D printing, and tours at the REAL Lab, Teaching Zoo, Construction Institute, Rock Cycle Garden, and Planetarium. The week ended with a field experience to Seahorse Key.
