Fremont kids camps begin June 24

OMAHA, Neb. — Fremont College for Kids summer camps offered by Metropolitan Community College begin Monday, June 24, at Milliken Park Elementary, 2950 Dale St. Camps will run the mornings of June 24-28, with each camp being divided into different time sessions depending on age. Classes will be approximately one hour each day. Camps are intended for children ages 6-11 and focus on STEAM topics such as chemistry, engineering and art.

Cooking with Science

In this class, students will explore cooking through hands-on science experiments. Students will eat their way through various exciting learning opportunities using elements like matter, solar power and more fun interactive projects.

Roller Coasters and Rockets

Join MCC in designing and building contraptions that are wild, crazy or simply defy logic. Students will build their own mini marble roller coasters, slingshot UFO helicopters, create unique skewer structures and shoot rockets into the sky.

STEM Olympics

Go for the “gold” with Olympic-themed engineering challenges. Use the principles of gravity, inertia and friction to build the fastest bobsled tracks and ski slopes. Design streamlined javelins that will accurately hit targets. Create buoyant miniature kayaks that will navigate rushing waters and serpentine tracks. These STEM adventures will immerse campers in the science behind Olympic competition.

Wacky and Weird Art

Explore the world of art from a whole new perspective. Students will be painting upside down like Michelangelo, using wacky tools to paint like Vincent van Gogh and using marbles and Hot Wheels cars to paint like Jackson Pollock.
