Tech PM Session 2/Week 3: Scratch the Code
Kids can let their imaginations soar this summer, as the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science launches its new Tech PM fun-filled, weeklong afternoon workshops focusing on technology. The workshops are open to children entering third through eighth grades in the fall. No experience is necessary for the innovative workshops, which are designed to encourage project-based learning and 21st century skills.

From July 28th-August 1st, the workshop theme is Scratch the Code. We've all played video games, but now you can create your own! With Scratch 2.0, you can learn coding skills to build your own online stories, animations, and games. You may design a game to go on a quest or even solve a real world issue. Then you can mix & match pieces of code to create a whole new game, and challenge your family and friends to try it!

All Tech PM workshops will take place Monday–Friday from 4–6 p.m.

Time: 4pm-6pm
Location: Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science

Summer Camp Session 7
The Museum's 49th Annual Summer Camp offers eight, one-week camp sessions for kids from age 4 to 8th grade. Unique and fun-filled experiences include ecology, robotics, engineering, technology, field trips and more. While camp activities will be specific to the session chosen each week, every class will feature science lessons, projects, experiments and crafts, interspersed with time to explore the museum galleries, and a 30-minute outdoor PE time. Campers in the 4th through 8th grade groups will also go on a variety of field trips geared toward the weekly topic.

Group categories are set according to age: Pre-K, kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd & 3rd grades, 4th & 5th grades and 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with before-care and after-care available at an additional cost.

Camp fees are $180 for Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science members and $210 for non-members (additional fees for specialty classes like Robotics, Sailing, etc). Sibling discounts are available. Campers bring their own lunches; two healthy snacks are provided each day.
