MANCHESTER, NH – SEE Science Center is where everyone can discover the excitement of STEM through fun, hands-on experiences. We encourage discovery and innovation through interactive multi-sensory experiences that engage both traditional and non-traditional learners. To be true to our mission of hands-on exploration, SEE will be providing several weeks of in-person summer camps during the 2020 camp year.
“We listened to feedback from parents. Many children have been cooped up for almost four months now and are beginning to display behavioral issues from isolation. It is important to provide a safe outlet for kids to be kids.” Executive Director Shana Hawrylchak, when asked about the decision to continue in-person camps.
All SEE camps adhere with State guidance for the safe operation of day camps. SEE has modified traditional programming to allow for continued operation of small-size camp sessions. While practicing physical distancing, campers will be able to participate in safe social interactions with their peers and engaging hands-on activities.
“We have completely overhauled our camp safety protocol this year. We have new pick-up and drop-off procedures, reduced group sizes, individual activity packs and camper safety masks in place of the normal camp tees. It is important that parents feel safe when entrusting us with their child. We did everything we could to ensure that this will be a safe experience for our campers” Pete Gustafson, Operations Director.
SEE will be hosting three weeks of camp at SEE Science Center 200 Bedford Street, Manchester, NH. Parents can choose from two different camp themes: FIRST® PLACE™ Invention Challenge summer camp and Camp Summer Science.
FIRST® PLACE™ Invention Challenge summer camp invites kids ages 9-14 to think like scientists and engineers. NH Certified Teachers who have experience with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® will guide the campers in small teams to design, modify and program autonomous EV3 robots. Campers will have the opportunity to try out the brand new FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge for the 2020-2021 competition season.
