Michigan Science Center Offers Science Camp To Metro Detroit Youths

Posted By Urban News Hour | April 3, 2013

Metro Detroit school kids examined rocks and learned about tornadoes as part of the Michigan Science Center’s spring break camp, continuing through Friday.

Students can attend one day or all five of the week-long series, and learn about everything from biology to geology.

Since reopening in December, the science museum has seen attendance climb, said Julie Johnson, director of education. Not counting special exhibits, about 15,000 people came through the doors in March, as well as about 1,500 school kids per week in March.

“We are meeting and exceeding our budgeted numbers,” Johnson said.

Spring break programs run 9 a.m.-4 p.m. with child care available before and after. A single day is $40. Child care is $5 for either before or after the daily activities or $8 for both. Walk-ins are accepted.

The Michigan Science Center is located at 5020 John R St. in Detroit.
