LEGO camp wraps up!
Our last day of LEGO camp- Justin had a blast, and I was very impressed by the programming, the teachers and the facilities. We will definitely be doing more science museum camps in future summers.
While Justin was in class, Alex and I visited the "Collector's Corner" at the museum. She had a few rock samples that she wanted help in identifying. Because she was so interested in rock collecting, and was willing to talk about what she had found already, the volunteer who talked to her let her pick out a few little samples to bring home! Normally, a child brings in a sample from nature, and the more they can tell the Collector about it, the more "points" they are assigned. They can then use those points to 'buy' samples from the museum. Pretty cool!
