Driven to Discover

This summer and fall, bring your inquisitive 8 – 12 year olds to Driven to Discover: Outdoor Inquiry Camp at Riverside Park. This 10-week program guides kids through the process of discovering answers to their own questions while being active outdoors.

Each week your kids will practice a new aspect of community science (observations, questions, hypotheses, methodology, data collection, interpreting results) or explore new topics (butterflies, birds, insects, etc.). They will be encouraged to wonder about the things they discover and try to answer their own questions.

The program culminates with a mini-research project and joining other youth from all over the country to present their research at the Insect Fair at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities campus in December (travel and lodging is covered at no cost).

Driven to Discover will meet on Mondays from 4 - 5:30pm. Join us Monday, July 14th at 5pm to learn more and complete the registration materials.
