MC offers hands-on science exploration workshops for children, parents
New this summer at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs is a series of workshops that open up a venue for children (third grade and above) and their parents to explore science together. Workshops will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in two week increments (four sessions per workshop).
Parent-child teams will learn and apply science and math concepts while engaged in activities such as launching a model rocket or racing a solar-powered car. The four workshops will focus on the following themes:
Constructing a working radio (June 22-July 1)
Exploring magnetism and electricity (July 6-15)

Building and racing solar cars (July 20-29)
Workshops are held at the college’s Glenwood Center at 1402 Blake Ave. in Glenwood Springs.
