Today is a special day, and it's not just because it's free Slurpee day at 7/11. July 11, 2016, the Monte L. Bean Life Science museum is pleased to present this year's Junior Naturalist Camp! This program is made possible in conjunction with our partner, Thanksgiving Point Institute. Designed for 4th-6th graders, this program helps young explorers discover nature and participate in collecting, recording, preparing, identifying, and sharing. Held this week from 9 am to 3 pm, our young scientists will be able to pin bugs, tour collections, and develop hypotheses of their own.
Though this year's session is sold out, this isn't a one-time deal; we can't wait to see you next year!
With this personal, hands-on experience just down the road from you museum-goers, it's pretty dumb not to sign your children up. It's not every day they get to have a chat with a museum director - or two.
