Expedition: Forest Floor
Free Science Summer Camp
Friday, June 12, 10am - 2pm
Facebook online event
Join us for a free, virtual Science Summer Camp - Expedition Forest Floor and get ready to go on a virtual field trip! Explore the forest floor with staff from the KU Natural History Museum to learn about the properties of soil and the diversity of life it supports. This camp explores soil and its communities of microorganisms through hands-on activities and demonstrations you can watch from home to understand the role soil plays in a forest community! This is a free, online camp – all you need is a computer and an internet connection. We'll release new camp videos from 10am - 2pm on June 12! While camps are geared toward 8-11 year olds, kids of all ages are welcome to participate, including families!
