Sternberg Museum of Natural History is offering seven science camps this summer, being out of country Field Paleontology: Australia, Ecuador Wildlife Biology, in-country Field Volcanology, Southwest Wildlife Biology plus in-state Field Paleontology: Kansas, Introduction to Research and Fossil Preparation Methods.

“We have seven different programs this summer in geoscience, wildlife biology and paleontology,” camp director David Levering said.

The cost of each summer camp varies. Financial aid is available to any high school student applying for any camp Sternberg offers.

“We have a field volcanology camp that will be starting in Oregon, and they’ll go to Oregon, Washington, and northern California visiting all kinds of different volcanic sites,” Levering said.

Students interested in biology can register for Ecuador Wildlife Biology and Southwest Wildlife Biology.

Students interested in Paleontology can register for Fossil Preparation Methods, Field Paleontology: Kansas and Field Paleontology: Australia.

Introduction to Research teaches students about designing and constructing a science research project. This camp is for any student interested in biology, paleontology, or geoscience.

Students from across the country apply for the science camps.

“Last summer during a camp session we had 19 students from 12 states and one from another country,” Levering said.
