One of Lancaster Science Factory’s STEM summer camps may be for him.
The science facility is hosting a slew of summer camps for kids this summer, with themes ranging from how to become a “mathemagician” to “painting with a twist.”
Held Monday through Friday as either five half-day morning sessions (9 a.m. to noon) or five half-day afternoon sessions (1 p.m. to 4 p.m.), each camp costs $135 per child. Members receive a 10-percent discount.
Registration is open until one week prior to the start of the camp.
Children who register for both a morning and afternoon session are asked to bring a packed lunch.
Here’s the list of summer camps still open for registration:

You will leave with a magic box full of new tricks and a brain stuffed with mind-blowing magic and math.
