Summer camps: Amusement park physics, 'gross science' and more ...


The Rochester Museum and Science Center has scheduled four full-day, summer science camps for 6-to- 11-year-olds at the FLCC Victor Campus Center, located off Route 251, just east of Eastview Mall.
Camps are as follows:
July 30 to Aug 3
Ages 6 to 8: The Amusement Park Science camp allows children to explore the physics behind rides, design carnival games and make amusement park food. The camp includes a trip to Seabreeze Amusement Park.
Ages 9 to 11: The Physics of Flight camp teaches children how birds and planes use lift to fly. Students perform experiments, drop eggs off a tower, make kites and planes and even launch rockets. 
August 6 to 10
Ages 6 to 8: In Gross Science camp, children make icky and sticky substances and hunt for bugs, worms and other critters.
Ages 9 to 11: Animation camp teaches children how to create their own cartoons and about the role of CGI, or computer generated imaging, in making modern movies.
Camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and cost $245 per week. Each camp includes a field trip to the Rochester Museum and Science Center. Campers should bring a lunch. Extended care is available from 8 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 5 p.m. for an additional $20 per week for the morning or afternoon session.
To register by phone, call (585) 697-1942.
