During the week of July 11 through 15, Clark Planetarium will be at Red Butte Gardens to teach campers about life on Mars.  Through experimentation and discovery, campers will learn all about our mysterious planetary neighbor.  This will be followed by an afternoon session about some seemingly other-worldly plants such as the Corpse Flower and the Dragon Blood Tree.

Out of this World Science/Weather Watchers Camp

July 18 – 22

3rd – 4th grade (full day camp) $235

During the week of July 18 through 22, campers will learn to explore “out of this world science” and Weather Watchers activities.  Campers will spend the first part of the day with our education staff learning how to build comets, design spacecrafts and perform a variety of other exciting experiments.  During the afternoon, they will continue learning about the physical world as they discover how Utah’s unique weather affects our local plants and animals.
