Attention students in grades K-8! This summer, the PTO will be welcoming back Ken Schroeder, of the Strategic Air & Space Museum, to instruct some “Out of this World” science camps! Grades K-5 will be held July 22-23-24 at WRE, and grades 6-8 will be held July 25 & 26 at the High School. Students in grades K-5 will experience hands-on activities like exploring rockets, making aliens and space ships and learning with his digital planetarium theater. You won’t want to miss the 36 foot inflatable “space shuttle” slide that Ken will be bringing to camp either! For the older kids in grades 6-8, you will engage in a rocket challenge, astronaut fitness challenge and learn with the digital planetarium theater. These young astronauts in training will even get to take a turn on the MAT ride (Multi Axis Trainer) that Ken is bringing to Wood River. It’s a giant gyroscope-type ride that is used as a disorientation screening exercise for pilots and astronauts. Click here for more information and the registration forms! Grades K-5 Grades 6-8
