Sick of watching Saturday morning cartoons? Want to skip out on weekend errands and chores? Spend some time with your family finding electricity in lemons, making “goo” and having STEM-powered fun instead! The UNH STEM Discovery Lab hosts its second annual 4-H Science Bonanza on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 9 a.m. to 3: 30 p.m. Though the event is geared primarily toward youth ages 5-13, adults and older kids are welcome to join the festivities.
When summer hits, all I can think about is camp! When I was a kid, summer camp was the highlight of year. It came in many forms for me: YMCA day camps, playground camps at city parks, sleep-away camps in the woods and, as a high schooler, summers working as a camp counselor. Camp lets youth break out of the shells they build around themselves during the school year. There is a sense of freedom in the pressure-free zone of camp, even educational camps.
