Budding scientists in the area have a great resource to take advantage of after the last day of school called “Science in the Summer.” Vance County is one of 11 counties in the state where the science camp will be held, according to information from the Perry Memorial Library.
The program is sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline and Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. This year’s theme is “Be a Biologist: Discover the World Around You!”
Camp and registration dates for Vance Country are below. Sessions will be held in the Farm Bureau Room at the library, located at 205 Breckenridge St.
