Benedictine University will host its 13th annual Summer Sleuths science camp for middle school-age children from July 14-17. The camp is designed to help students learn how to search for solutions to real-world problems; enhance their communication skills with peers; gather information from experts, experiments, the Internet and other sources; present their solutions to a panel of experts; and meet new friends and have fun. The camp is part of the Alternative Teacher Certification program at Benedictine. This summer’s “problem” focuses on “The Lunar Challenge.” The camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The camp is free, but enrollment is limited. Campers must provide their own lunch. For more information about the camp or to register, call Jean Geiseheker at (630) 829-6109 or e-mail jgeisheker@ben.edu.
