Design a digital rock dock station. Create a superhero mobile. Build and battle a dino-robot. Launch rockets to new heights. The children who engage in these once-in-a-lifetime activities at Destination Science camps aren't just having fun—they're learning science. At over 130 camp locations in six states, counselors lead campers ages 5 to 11 through a full week of hands-on exploration in various disciplines. Aided by kid-friendly tools, entertaining demonstrations, and inventive lesson plans, they teach campers the basics of scientific inquiry through the fun of exploration and experimentation. The four main camps focus on topics ranging from human and marine biology to astronomy, engineering, and physics, often with engaging games and hands-on projects. All of Destination Science's instructors are experienced educators and university students, each focused in the sciences and chosen for their ability to relate to children and build an effective baking-soda volcano.
"You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, AMF was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in bowling, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public.
Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature the latest technologies, from high-tech scoring systems to the ability to share experiences on social media. Bowlers can also refuel on a menu of American foods when they get hungry or the little heart-shaped meter above their heads begins blinking.
