Destination Science Camp Open for Signups

Camp offers STEM-focused programs for kids

Registration is now open for the Destination Science camp that will be taking place on campus from June 20 to July 8. The program aims to be a fun way for kids to enhance their skills in STEM-based topics such as robotics, marine science, solar engineering, and space. Destination Science is a camp for kids ages 5 to 11 who want to learn more about science and broaden their horizons, according to the event organizers.

There will be three different camps that will each focus on a different field of science. These include the Robot Island Marine Science camp, the Solar Engineer and Sci-Mystery camp, and the Space Adventures camp.

According to the GCC website, the first camp, which combines robotics and marine science, will take place from June 20 to June 24. Kids will not only get to build their own robots and learn about electric circuits but examine different sea creatures. The second camp will start on June 27 and end on July 1. During this time, kids will learn about DNA testing and chemistry, as well as what it means to be eco-friendly. The last camp will focus on space, in which kids will learn about planets, constellations, and NASA. This will take place from July 5 to July 8.

Each camp will allow children to have fun while making new discoveries in the process. Destination science will be led by Kathy Heraghty. Heraghty has a love of science, as she received her BS degree in Kinesiology from UCLA. She also has experience in physiology, and enjoys creating a fun learning environment for kids using science and technology. Destination Science will take place at GCC’s main campus, and are open for signups now.
