Join us at Camp SOLID (Science of Learning Instrument Design), a day full of fun STEAM activities for students grades 3 through 5!

Campers will learn about the science of sound, with live music and science experiments on the concert hall stage, then create their own unique sound device from recycled materials. At the end of the day, students will demonstrate their sound device on stage at The Sheldon!

Students will work with professionals in science and the arts from the Saint Louis Science Center and The Sheldon.

Lunch is included in the registration fee.

Before and after care is available for an extra fee (beginning at 7 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m.)

To ensure everyone’s safety, enrollment is limited to 20 campers per day, and masks are required for students and staff.
