S.T.EA.M. Camp A Success

For the second time the Muskingum Family "Y" is offering a different type of camp. One where campers can do everything from dissections to egg drops.

Organizer Heather Sands says the three week program combines science, engineering, art and math into a camp setting.

"We wanted to incorporate a lot of art projects as well into the program in addition to a college access piece to let students know about the different careers that are out there related to those industries," said Sands.

Any student can register to attend, Zanesville Middle School students can attend for free since it's part of a "Gear Up" grant at Zane State College. There are also financial aid and scholarships for other students to attend.

Sands says this year was another success with a maximum capacity of sixty students attending.

"At the last week of Science Camp they take us out to the college and take tours of Muskingum University and then for the science we go to the barn over there or we go up to Zane State College and do science things."

Sands says it's a great opportunity for kids to develop their science skills during the summer and hopes they can continue the camp next year.
