Science + Summer = Fun

June 25, 2007

Albany -- Scientific question of the day: What do you get when you mix science experiments with summer break? Answer: hyperactive children.

Hands on learning was on the agenda for day one of the five day Science Train summer camp going on this week at the Thronateeska Heritage Center in Albany.

Youngsters here are learning that science is educational, but also entertaining.

" We're doing chemistry experiments. Experiments with sight and sound. We're going to space, where we're going to learn about stars and planets and the solar system," says Alison McCorkle.

The camp runs this week from 8:30 AM to 12 PM. It will wrap up this Friday with camper's participating in a water balloon catapult launch.
