Spring 2015: Why in the World?
Ever wonder why animals migrate? Why each snowflake is unique? Why dogs pant or cats purr? The world is filled with mysteries and your child will enjoy solving some of them during our Spring Mini Camp! They will explore how flowers and birds use color and how animals communicate. And they will sharpen their scientific skills as they discover why some animals become so big, why some make epic journeys, and much more!
