Spring Break Camp at Science Museum Oklahoma

Science Museum Oklahoma campers watch as a liquid nitrogen vapor cloud evaporates following a camp demonstration.

Fire safety, physics, engineering and tinkering are on deck for Science Museum Oklahoma’s spring break camps set for March 19-23 at the museum located at 2020 Remington Place in Oklahoma City.

“SMO’s spring break camps really have it all — unique themes for every age group, hands-on learning, Science Live and Kirkpatrick Planetarium shows, and of course the museum itself,” said Annie Bewley, museum educator for SMO.

The museum’s camps are for children in pre-K to sixth grade and feature a different theme for each age group.

“Camps are limited to 15 children per age group, which creates an ideal environment for one-on-one and small-group instruction. Our camps make for a truly memorable week at the museum.”

Camp themes, times and dates are:

  • Earth, Wind & Fire, ages 4-5 (pre-K and kindergarten), 9 a.m. to noon, $100 for members, $125 for nonmembers: There is a lot of science to spring! Young scientists will plant seeds, explore the SMO gardens, catch a breeze with rotocopters, harness the power of the wind and explore the basics of fire safety.
  • GO!, grades 1-3, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., $225 for members, $250 for nonmembers: Campers will get hands-on with physics and engineering during a week that is all about force — students will dissect a bicycle, build catapults, cardboard planes and zip lines, tour the museum’s Pullman parlor car and more.  
  • Build & Destroy, grades 4-6, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., $225 for members, $250 for nonmembers: In this week of tinkering, campers will construct contraptions, take electronics apart, get hands-on with wrecking balls to take down a cardboard city, experiment with implosions and more.
     

Advance registration is required. Registration will close March 12 or when full.
