Spring 2018: Tech Explorer

Spring Mini Camp

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is pleased to announce its Spring Mini Camp program, Lone Star Legends from March 12-16. Ever stop to think about the technology we use every day? From flipping on a light switch, to searching the internet on a computer — technology surrounds us! Let your child become a tech explorer and discover how some of these devices actually work from March 12-16 at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History!

Each day at our Spring Mini Camp 2018 offers a different adventure in technology. Kids will explore different types of technology through experiments, interactive lessons, crafts, games, museum displays, and more.

Each day we’ll examine a different technological field and learn about the inventions in various disciplines. Campers will discover how machines work, and how technology has changed through the years. Your child will also enjoy the incredible stories of tech inventions and their inventors. This exciting adventure includes the exploration of vintage home computers and video games on display in the Museum’s current exhibit, Bits and Bytes: the Innovation of Home Computers.

Studying science and history helps children, ages 4-12, to learn and understand the world around them. The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History offers learning opportunities in a safe, fun, and educational setting. Through non-traditional teaching techniques, fascinating lessons and activities, and supplemented with real Museum specimens, campers will explore the secrets behind several scientific disciplines!
