Modeled on the dream of our 2022 National Youth Science Camp Alum of the Year, Dennis Schatz (CO 1965), we are proud to announce our yearlong local program, Monday Night Science! Email Associate Director Nathan Sams for more information. Additional dates are posted on our Calendar of Events. A huge thank you to the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation for sponsoring this program, and to our partners at the Tucker County Family Support Center for helping to make these events possible!
PLEASE NOTE AS WE EXPERIENCE WINTER WEATHER: IF TUCKER COUNTY SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED, THEN OUR CAMPUS IS AS WELL AND EVENTS ARE CANCELED.
Please join us on February 19th as Nathan Sams will lead activities on probability, decimals, fractions, and percentages with data collection involving coin flips, dice, and cards. The activities will be appropriate for learners of all ages. Sheena Williams will be preparing chicken with local root vegetables and homemade rolls for dinner!
For the month of December (4th and 18th) we enjoyed game nights with a focus on community bonding, math, strategy, and problem-solving skills in our fun learning environment. Thank you to locals Jason and Angie of The Adventure Guild Game Shop in Thomas for joining us on December 18th!
