Carnegie Science Center Summer Camps Provides Great Options for Gifts

The summer may be months away, but most parents are already thinking about ways to ensure that their child’s summer is fun, active, and enriching. Experiences are the perfect gift to give any child this holiday season. Give the gift of video game science, robotics or space exploration, discovering the biology of Pittsburgh, or the chemistry of cooking. Carnegie Science Center summer camp registration is now open, and reservations are being accepted for dozens of programs for children and teens ages 4–18. If you can’t register for your favorite camper yet, purchase a Gift Certificate, good for camps, classes, membership, and admission to the Science Center.
Little Einstein’s will love specifically programmed half-day adventures, and other kids and teens will enjoy full-day science experiences.
Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center, one of Pittsburgh’s coolest digital makerspaces, offers cutting-edge experiences in digital fabrication, while the brand-new Colcom Foundation Wet Lab in the FedEx STEM Learning Labs allows kids to conduct authentic science experiments. Along with Kennywood Camp and Explore Pittsburgh, there are 20+ new themes to choose from that will keep kids active all summer long! Some camps will be held inside the new PPG SCIENCE PAVILION™.

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.
