SAC Museum to Offer Winter Camps for Students Grades 1–8
The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum (SACMuseum.org) is offering winter camps for students in grades 1–8 for three weeks this month, starting December 13. The camps are one-day or three-day experiences that inspire cooperative learning in students as they work together to discover, learn, and work as a team. There are several camps to choose from with themes in aerospace, drone, game coding, and robotics. All camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; before-camp care will be offered from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. for $8 per day. The camp programs include: Game On, a coding camp where campers build their own video game and unleash their creativity by creating a board or card game; Above & Beyond, an aerospace-themed camp that includes a mix of aviation and space activities; Drone Challenge, where campers learn how to fl y a drone through obstacle courses; Robotics, where campers learn about programming a variety of different robots; and others. For questions about the camps or to register, call the museum’s Education Department at (402) 944-3100, ext. 221.
