This camp may well have changed my daughter’s life. She came for the slime – very reluctantly. Each day she became more and more enthusiastic. So our 9 year old who would normally have limited interest in this type of thing was entirely gripped. By dinner on Friday evening she regaled us with facts about tectonic plates, how Greenland was formed, lightning, bees, oil spills, explosions… for about an hour. Every detail was correct, some we didn’t even know.
Since then she’s been asking are there secondary schools where you can just study science, all about careers in science, what you can study in university, how much you get paid!… She’s even planning to dress up as a dead scientist for Hallowe’en! In one week you have communicated the fun and endless fascination of science in a way that had just clicked for this little girl. Thank you so much!
