(May 31, 2011)--"Making Things Glow in the Dark" is just the first day of the 2011 Destination: Discovery Science Summer Camp, scheduled weekdays 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., June 20-July 1 at The University of Texas at San Antonio Downtown Campus. The camp is sponsored by the UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives.

UTSA is recruiting up to 25 aspiring scientists who will enter the fourth and fifth grades to attend the day camp filled with hands-on science projects. Professional science teachers and college-level students will teach the camp. It will be a rare opportunity for young students to work in a college science lab.

Other topics of exploration at camp will include the myth of Pop Rocks candy with soda, slime and polymers, fizzing and foaming, layered liquids, the Bernoulli Principle, the physics of paper airplanes and the perennial favorite challenge: designing a capsule to protect an egg from a four-story drop.

Registration is first-come, first-served and requires an $80 non-refundable tuition fee. Students are responsible for their own transportation. Lunch is included.

For more information or to request an application, contact Rose Ann San Martin at 210-458-2767 or visit the UTSA P-20 Initiatives website.
