Science Camp through Art

NIU Sci-Camp Exploring Science
Through Art


Campers entering grades 7-9

Sci-Camp Exploring Art 2012

Early bird registration ends May 15, 2013!


Create, make, innovate! Campers can take their art work to the next level by investigating the science behind making cool art. Create wind-powered kinetic sculptures; use polarized light to create paintings with tape; animate art digitally; color the world with laser spiro-graphs; explore the chemistry of color through tie-dye; and learn the secrets of making cool pop-up cards.

Both Exploring camps will live on the same residence hall floor, eat meals together, and enjoy many of the same evening activities, including a trip to the Davis Hall Observatory and bowling in the Huskie Den.
