Science camp for middle school students explores Onondaga Lake watershed with interactive, hands-on learning
Honeywell and the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology (MOST) are now accepting applications from Syracuse-area middle school students for the fourth annual Honeywell Summer Science Week at the MOST.
Local students will embark on a one-week scientific journey loaded with fun-filled adventures and lots of hands-on learning activities. The week kicks off with a guided boat cruise of Onondaga Lake, followed by activities such as exploring rock formations in the Tully Valley, conducting water chemistry sampling, and collecting insects and other creatures. Students will learn from local experts about their natural environment, the efforts underway to improve water quality, and how science and technology can help restore the watershed.
Honeywell sponsors the weeklong program, which reflects its longstanding commitment to provide students with knowledge and experiences that bring science to life in understandable and memorable ways. The program runs July 13-17 and has no registration fees. Lunches, snacks, drinks and all program transportation are included. Registration deadline is June 12 and space is limited. Interested parties should contact the MOST at (315) 425-9068 ext. 2163, or at email@example.com.
