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.

Space is limited so early registration is advised. Each workshop is $60 per adult-child team. Teams may register at CMC in Glenwood Springs, or by calling 970-945-7486.
