The World Peace Game is a hands-on political simulation that gives MPM campers the opportunity to explore the connectedness of the global community through the lens of world-wide economic, social, and environmental crises and solutions. Campers will use critical thinking, cooperation and multiple strategies as they are helped along by a WPG trained facilitator. In the afternoons, campers will have the opportunity to explore the Museum galleries to connect the natural and cultural world to their World Peace Game projects.
Fieldwork Investigations with MPM - SOLD OUT
August 8-12, 2016
Registration deadline: July 18
Step beyond traditional summer camps and get real-world field experience under your belt through a MPM biodiversity field research adventure. Kids will explore the science of taxonomy as we compare plant species from two Milwaukee green spaces, create our own scientific illustrations, and research our findings with the help of MPM scientists. This camp allows students a chance to become scientists as they build proficiency in critical thinking, logic, research, writing skills and more! What will we find?
