Hands-on science fun this summer

There’s still time to give kids a fun experience exploring our watery world, through the summer-camp programs that start the week of June 22-26 at the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

The Aquarium shows kids the fun side of science inquiry, with lots of hands-on activities and experiments, interactions and observations of the Aquarium’s animals, and maybe even an IMAX movie or outing aboard the Aquarium’s unique new research vessel. Each session is different, so pick from one, some or all.
