Science can take children on a journey of discovery, adventure and a lifetime of piqued interest.

This week, several young ladies ventured to STEM@TLU to get a hands-on experience at some of the many different routes that science, technology, engineering and mathematics might take them.

Elementary-aged students had a similar experience with the Seguin ISD MatCamp “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

Throughout this week, those students got the opportunity to see with their own eyes how science is applied in every day in the criminal justice field.

The children learned about fingerprints and how to collect them, taking mold plasters of shoe prints and using scientific methods to identify the prints.

They are also learning the many ways science can be fun and how far it can take them, if that is the path they decide to go.

But most importantly, they are continuing to learn and engage their minds during the summer months.

It’s been said that children oftentimes suffer the summer slump when they return to school, forgetting some of the lessons they were taught the previous year.

These types of camps keep students engaged, learning, active and in some cases provide them chances to socialize with other like-minded children.

The camps offered by Seguin ISD, Seguin Library, Marion Library, the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center and more offer incredible opportunities for children within our community.
