Starting this spring, Naper Settlement will offer School’s Out Day Camps for kids in grade one through five.
The newly minted program will give children the opportunity to learn about science, engineering, food chemistry and much more on their days off.
The following courses will be offered:
"Messy, Mad Science" — children will be able to experiment with messy, but safe compounds such as slime and silly putty. They will be able to create their own hands-on experiments and learn at the same time. Participants should wear old clothes; they will be provided with a lab coat and eye protection: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Feb. 20.
"Imaginarium" — Campers will inspect the elements of engineering by building their own toothpick towers, sundials and desert bars: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. March 3.
"Snack Science" — Students will be cooking up a storm in the kitchen and experimenting with kitchen chemistry. They will take common household items and ingredients to make edible experiments — marshmallow monsters, gummy bears and lemon-powered batteries: 9 a.m.-3 p.m. March 27.
The curriculum will take place at Naper Settlement, located at 523 S. Webster St., Naperville. The fee is $120 per student for all three days or $45 per student per day.
