Albuquerque, NM – Science will come to life at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History during the 2013 “Science is Everywhere” Winter Day Camp. Children ages 6 to 12 will experience the wonders of science in one-day sessions held December 23, 26, 27, 30 and January 2 & 3, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
With a different theme for each day, students have the opportunity to explore many facets of science and history through hands-on exploration and investigation.
