RENO, NV - The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum is hosting its first 'Discovery at Night' Friday night. The camp is an overnight, educational stay at the museum for kids and chaperons. When the museum closes for the night, the adventure begins.
Participants will enjoy themed art and science activities, and then bunk down for the night in one of the museum's galleries. The 2014 theme is Space-The Fantastic Frontier!
Campers will get to explore the final frontier and beyond with hands-on activities like rocket building, a Mars Rover egg drop, do-it-yourself telescopes, a tour of the night sky from the comfort of a portable Star Lab and much more. As a part of the program, an evening snack and breakfast are included; campers will also get a commemorative patch and free admission to the museum the following day.
