The Weis Earth Science Museum is offering Wisconsin Earth Adventure, a summer program in geology for children going into grades 4 through 6. Sessions are scheduled for June 26-30, July 10-24, July 17-21, and July 24-28, with each morning or afternoon session lasting three hours.

The sessions that begin on June 26 and July 10 run from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The sessions that start on July 17 and July 24 are from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

As an ‘Earth Explorer,’ children will learn about the forces that shaped our planet through fun and educational activities. Activities include growing crystals, casting a fossil, building an erupting volcano, creating an edible ice cream glacier, and many more.

Each session costs $125 and includes all materials, a daily snack, and a t-shirt. To register, visit the Museum website at www.weismuseum.org and click or call 920.832.2868. A discount is available for siblings enrolled in the program or for children who also enroll in Wisconsin Space Academy at the Barlow Planetarium. A lunch option is available.

All sessions are held at the Weis Earth Science Museum, which is located on the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley campus at 1478 Midway Rd., Menasha. For more information, contact Dr. Joanne Kluessendorf, WESM director, at 920-832-0125 or email joanne.kluessendorf@uwc.edu.
