Do you know what an odontocete is? Or how to walk on stilts? Me either. But kids who attend one of the Alameda Education Foundation’s Spring Break Enrichment Camps will soon find out!
The Alameda Education Foundation (AEF) announces Spring Break Enrichment Camps for students in grades kindergarten-5th grade. The camps include perennial favorites Mad Science, for K-3 students, and Skilly Circus, for grades 2-5. Both camps will be April 1-5, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Lum Elementary School. After-care will be provided by Alameda Park and Recreation (ARPD) at Lincoln Park. Transportation to Lincoln Park is provided by ARPD.
“World Scientists Camp with Mad Science” includes such hands-on projects as solar experiments, exploring predator and prey relationships, and investigating food webs. Students will take a trip into the ocean to learn what an odontocete is, create an insect habitat and even dissect an owl pellet.
At Skilly Circus, students will learn juggling, the fundamentals of circus acrobatics, slapstick and clown theater and will create their own circus show at the end of the week.
More information about the camps and registration is on the AEF website. There is a $20 discount for registering before March 1st.
