CLEVELAND — The Great Lakes Science Center is a haven for kids of all ages who are wanting to learn and have some fun.

Their ever-popular science camps are sparking interest so the science center is shifting focus to summer with registration for Spring Break Camps quickly filling up.

“Science is so multi-faced. SO we want to make sure that all of our camps encompass that feeling,” said STEM coordinator Emalee Schechter.

The summer series includes 25 new offerings that are geared towards kids in two different age brackets. The camps are broken up for kids from kindergarten to third grade and from fourth through eighth grade.

“You always hear Why? Why does this work? Why does that work? What happens if I do this,” Schechter said.

The camps cover everything from chemistry to circuit boards and everything in between.

“Kids love to take things apart, and circuits are something that you would see inside something that you would take apart,” Schechter said. “Now where a lot of things are digital, are technical, circuits are really interesting for kids.”

The science center was recently recognized as one of 15 finalists for the 2021 National Medal for Museum and Library service.

“We do so many different types of programming. And it’s really awesome to see the impact that we’ve had on the community,” Schechter said. “We’re one of 15 museums that have been chosen out of 35,000”
