SciTech Tuesday: Recap of Summer Science Camp

dividing bar

Three fun-filled weeks of Summer Science Camp just wrapped up at the Museum. The ingenuity and innovation necessary for American victory in WWII was emphasized through topics including aeronautics, engineering, physics, biology and medicine. Campers made and tested Pykrete, an experimental super-strong material made of ice and wood pulp, designed camouflage creating robots and extracted DNA from strawberries.

Campers had unique opportunities to explore the Museum’s resources paired with hands-on time with real WWII artifacts. Favorite activities included viewing Beyond All Boundaries, trying on uniforms and equipment used by American soldiers at White Glove Wednesdays and seeing the restoration of PT-305 in the Museum’s John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion.
