The 2nd annual three week NVSD Science Camp will be held again this year from July 7th through July 24. The camp is 4 one-half days focused on science for students in the Nestucca Valley School District. NVCA will work with the students on Thursdays, like last year – that is July 10, 17 and the 24th. Monday-Wednesday students will work with NVES teachers and assistants.
The curriculum is currently being planned. If you recall last year NVCA worked with the students on regional fish recognition, dory boat fishing and fish painting. They also learned more about the Nestucca watershed, waterflow and the science of soccer. The field trip to the beach on the last day was exceptional. Great weather for exploring tide pools, geology and beach grass history.
Contact NVCA at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have some ideas or programs that would be of interest.
