Oregon State University, in partnership with the Oregon Coast Science, Technology, Engineering and MathematicsHub, will provide local middle-schoolers with a free opportunity next month to try their hands at making solar cars and earthquake simulations.
The two-day Cosey Mobile Science and Engineering Camp will visit Astoria Middle School July 10 and 11 and is open to Astoria- and Warrenton-area students entering the sixth through ninth grade. A subsequent two-day camp will visit Seaside Heights Elementary School July 12 and 13 for students in Seaside, Gearhart and Cannon Beach.
The camps, which run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, will provide lunch and the opportunity for students to design solar-powered cars, create earthquake simulations and more.
Registration ends one week prior to the camp. Register for the for the Seaside camp at http://tinyurl.com/COSEY-Seaside. If all slots fill up, registrants can be placed on a waiting list in case a spot opens up.
Students must have a parent or guardian sign waivers during registration in order to participate in the camp. Families can pick up forms for the camps in both English and Spanish at their local school.
