Children in summer camp learn about science at RTP

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC (WNCN) — Local kids were given the opportunity to try some hands-on science experiments at Bayer CropScience in RTP Wednesday afternoon.

A  group of fifth grade students with Passage Home summer camp took part in the “Making Science Make Sense” program.  The program is designed to help spark the students’ interest in STEM-related activities and develop their science skills.

Danielle Mayber with Bayer Cropscience said, “If they’re really engaged in doing experiments in their summer camp and they get excited about it and have something to take home with them then they really appreciate that science and have fun with it.”

One of the more fun and tasty activities included using coffee filters and Cheetos to simulate pollination.

Passage Home has been partnering with Bayer CropScience for several years.  Their goal is to help develop and empower local children in Wake County through educational and team-building activities.
