TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Do you have a child that is interested in science?  Then the International Wildlife Museum has the summer programs for you. 

IWM is offering Conservation Science Adventures Programs this summer that include several STEM related activities.  The programs will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and are for children 6 to 9 years old and 10 to 15 years old. 

Children will learn about Earth's ecosystem, live animals, museum and outdoor explorations, as well as hands on crafts and activities, games, movies and much more. Instructors have experience in conservation and outdoor education and are first aid and CPR certified.  Two snacks will be provided, but children must bring their own lunches. 

There are several sessions still available - July 18-22; July 27 and July 29. Fees are included with the following program descriptions: 

  • July 18-22: Scales and Tails (Ages 6-9: $75) - Learn all about scaly animals such as fish and reptiles through hands-on activities, games and crafts
  • July 27: Mammals* (Ages 10-15: $15) - Learn all about mammals through classification, museum explorations and artifacts.
  • July 28: Archery* (Ages 10-15: $15) - Students learn the basics of archery and bow maintenance taught by trained NASP instructors that emphasize safety, as well as make it fun! Students shoot compound bows at Olympic style and 3D targets.

*Indicates that a Boy Scout merit badge can be earned. Reptiles & Amphibians, Nature and Insect badges have requirements that exceed the length of these programs and will need to be completed at a later date. Girl Scouts can earn the Archery badge by attending the Archery camp. Students do not have to be Scouts in order to participate in any camp.
