ISU Extension and Outreach Mad Scientist Day Camp Gives Youth Hands-On Science Experience
Iowa State University Extension and Outreach programs for K-12 youth include a strong focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills. Mad Scientist Day Camps get youth excited about STEM learning with fun activities to help youth see how science fits into their everyday lives.
ISU extension and outreach has taken part in youth-targeted programs that help instill interest and exposure to science and natural phenomena to set the first building blocks for future Iowan scientists. The campers are offered an opportunity to learn about science in hands-on ways that teach and fuel a thirst for knowledge during an important time in their lives.
