Science is wondrous. Science is mind-blowing. Science moves, multiplies, and morphs. It inspires adventure and exploration, and it answers questions while triggering new ones! At Storefront Science Summer Camp, we want your children to experience science for the first time as it truly is: amazing, inspirational, and a lot of fun.
