Explore space on spring break
Take your child far while staying close to home this spring break. Blast off on an "ed" venture that will be remembered for a lifetime by enrolling in Chabot Space & Science Center's Space Explorers Spring Break Camp.
The full-day camp offers hand-on, interactive activities that educate and entertain children of all ages April 6 - 10 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. All camps include a hike in the Redwoods, one planetarium and one MegaDome theater show.
Micronauts (1st - 3rd graders)
This camp is just right for the youngest space explorers! Design your own spacesuit and train like a real astronaut. Make different types of rockets, try space food, and design and build a space station. Junior space commanders unite - 3... 2... 1... blastoff!
Space Out! (4th - 5th graders)
Fly a space mission to Mars, step into the portable Starlab, construct and launch a rocket, make a comet, search for planets through telescopes and more. Space out on this super adventure through the universe.
Robotics World (6th - 8th graders)
Using the new Lego Mindstorms NXT software and hardware, campers will learn programming techniques that will really make your 'bots move. Design robots to compete in daily 'bot to 'bot challenges - dance offs, battle 'bots, and rescue missions. Explore the world of robotics, and see what you can create.
Cost per camp session is $350 for members, $385 for non-members. Before and after care is available for $35 each or $60for both.
