Junior MedCamp returns in June 2022, with five full days of health-care-themed STEM activities for children ages 9 to 11.
This year's camp session is presented in partnership with Eichold-Mertz Magnet School of Math Science and Technology, the Edith Mitchell Health Initiative, and S.C.H.O.O.L.S.
From 8 am through 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday, up to 30 campers will participate in arts and crafts, games, and experiments as we investigate topics such as how germs cause illness, human anatomy and body functions, and how common instruments such as the stethoscope and the blood pressure monitor are used. They will build models, test and observe chemical reactions, use microscopes to examine cell structures, and dissect flowers to learn about plant reproduction and garden ecology. Camp activities will be led by experienced science educators.
