MEDICINE PARK, OK (TNN) -The Medicine Park Aquarium and Natural Sciences Center is getting ready for their spring break mini camps.
The spring break mini camps will take place Wednesday through Friday. Throughout these three days kids will be able to learn about what biologists do behind the scenes of the aquarium, explore the outdoors, and attend a fishing camp. Director of Education, Colleen Edwards said these camps will allow for them to continue to learn outside of school.
“The reason for the spring break camps is to help enrich the students break, you know you can have a student who just has a screen stuck to their face the whole time, or you can go out and explore and learn, and really get to interact with this world," said Edwards.
She said their Wednesday camp on Biologist 2.0 offered for students ages 14 to 18 is open along with their Outdoor Explorer camp on Thursday for ages 8 to 14.
“I think whenever the students come out here what we’re trying to promote is a life long love of learning and curiosity because there’s so many interesting things in this natural world that you don’t even realize until you start to look into it,” said Edwards.
The classes are from 9 to 11:30 in the morning and cost $35 per class. Edwards said the employees enjoy being able to interact with everyone who comes to the aquarium.
“It’s really our favorite part of the job. What we love the most is getting to see the guest and the wonder in the students, and watch them engage with everything we do here," said Edwards.
