Learning Science Through Culture

On July 11, eleven campers in grades one-three participated in ISU Extension and Outreach Story County’s day camp called “Light It Up.” Participants learned about light concepts in a cultural context as they followed the story of an Egyptologist attempting to illuminate hidden hieroglyphs. They were then challenged to illuminate hieroglyphs in box tombs using reflective surfaces.
