TJC to host space camp March 7-11


Kids can learn about rockets, stars, planets, telescopes and more during a spring break space camp hosted by the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College. 

Designed for ages 6 through 10, the camp will be offered 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday, March 7-11. Cost is $100 for campers attending Monday, Wednesday and Friday only, or $150 for the full week. Space is limited, and reservations are recommended.

A typical day will include time in the 40-foot dome theater as well as classroom activities. Each camper will also build a telescope that they can take home as a souvenir.

"This camp is a great opportunity for kids to have fun, be entertained all week long, and learn about space," said Kim Lessner, TJC science center director.

"We offer a unique opportunity to show kids how entertaining science can be and how prevalent science is in our culture."
