Is Your Teen Obsessed With Star Wars?

If you have older kids between the ages of 10-14, and they are obsessed with Star Wars, there is a summer camp for them: "The Science of Star Wars."

"Explore what might be possible both in our galaxy and far away. Take a trip through science and crafts to the desert of Jakku or the forest moon of Endor, and learn to keep warm while out in the snows of Hoth. Learn to pilot the Millenium Falcon, build your own R2 unit, and encounter a lost child along the way. Ages 10-14."

"The Science of Star Wars" camp runs at the Utica Campus July 22nd - July 25th. You can read more online here.
