"Wacky Engineering" 

Rube Goldberg became famous for creating overly complicated machines which combined an improbably connected series of events designed to produce an absurdly simple result. In this fall's Science Curiosity Investigation Camp we will be pursuing the same folly.

From October 6 through 10, 2014, the Hardin Planetarium will host a 5-day camp open to any student in grades 3-6. From 8 am to 12 noon, participants engaged in fun, interactive investigations, creative projects, all designed to stimulate curiosity and encourage cooperative discovery and foster problem solving. The theme for this camp is "Wacky Engineering!"

Camps run for one week only! Fall Break Camp runs from October 6 though 10, 2014, 
Half day: Monday - Friday, 8 am to 12 noon daily.
