The 2012 College for Kids session kicked off June 12 and hosts a number of programs. Offerings include the traditional programs (grades K-5), middle school camps (grades 6-8), Musical Theater Camp (grades 6-12), and SAM (Science, Art and Math) Camp (grades 3-7). Select camps run through Aug. 3.
Campers at this year’s College for Kids classes at Garrison-Jones Elementary School are learning about Crime Scene Investigation. Using cocoa powder, camp participants learn how to dust for prints; how flour and cornmeal become the casting materials to obtain 3-D replicas of a variety of prints; and how mini-marshmallows and Twizzlers become double-stranded molecules of nucleic acids. The best part is that campers get to eat up almost all of the detective work they do.
