The Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History invites incoming fourth and fifth graders to our Nature Explorers summer camp all about Biomimicry!
Biomimicry is an engineering concept that uses ideas from nature to create sustainable solutions. Incoming fourth and fifth graders are invited to spend a week exploring and drawing inspiration from nature to solve design challenges and engineer their own solutions to help humans live more sustainably on earth.
This camp will feature field trips to different habitats nearby in Santa Cruz. Each of the five days will focus on a different theme that will guide a variety of projects, science investigations, supervised explorations, and games. “Leave no trace” ethics and safety in nature will be emphasized throughout the week so that campers will leave equipped with a better understanding of how to responsibly interact with the natural world. The week leads up to completing an engineering project and an open house to showcase all the interesting discoveries made at camp. Join us to build connections to nature and stewardship for our future!
Camp will run from 9AM-3PM each day, with drop-off from 8:30-9 and pickup from 3-3:30. Member discounts and limited scholarships are available. More information at santacruzmuseum.org/camp
