SEATTLE ⁠— February 6 2023 ⁠— Pacific Science Center (PacSci) will offer summer camps in a new location in South Seattle this year. The new site, located at Impact Salish Sea Elementary School in South Seattle’s Othello Square, includes PreK programming, PM extended care for busy parents and guardians, and 33 scholarship spots. Summer campers will engage in a variety of topics such as “Under the Sea,” “What’s Up Doc?,” “To the Moon,” “Mission to Mars,” “Cooking Up Science,” and more.

“We are delighted to expand inclusive and accessible STEM programming to the South Seattle community, which has a rich history and diversity,” said Will Daugherty, PacSci’s CEO. “Summer camps are an invaluable resource that provide students with opportunities to engage with STEM outside of the classroom, and the PacSci team is incredibly excited to bring those opportunities to students in South Seattle. We also hope to learn and partner with South Seattle communities to inspire new STEM learning for students.”

“I am excited to see more high-quality STEM opportunities for youth and families in South Seattle during the summer,” said Erin Okuno, PacSci board member and South Seattle resident. “Out-of-school time exploration, wonder, and connecting to people and communities help children learn and see themselves as part of a larger world.”

PacSci’s award-winning summer camps offer more than 100 exciting opportunities for exploration and experimentation. In addition to the new location in South Seattle, PacSci will continue to offer summer camps at five other locations across the Puget Sound, including Mercer Slough in Bellevue; Explorer West Middle School in West Seattle; St. Thomas Middle School in Medina; Kirkland Seventh-Day Adventist School; and the PacSci campus itself. Over 300 scholarship spots are available across all locations. PacSci also offers girls-focused and sensory-friendly summer camp options.

Camp registrations open on Monday, February 6 to PacSci members and on Monday, February 13 to the public. Learn more and register.
