Summer Camp for Junior Scientists
Has your kitchen been the scene of an exploding volcano? Is your backyard being excavated for precious rocks and dinosaur bones? Do you frequently run out of tin foil because it’s being used to communicate with other planets?
Don’t panic — there are two sessions left of our Junior Scientist Summer Camp! They’ll dig into a wide range of scientific fields including space exploration, dinosaurs, the environment, and more. Each weeklong session will explore a new topic every day.

Every camper will receive admission to museum galleries, a planetarium show, activity supplies, snacks, and a T-shirt.

Space Racers Exclusive Pre-Screening
We’re spacing out! Join us this Sunday, July 13 at 11am as we welcome the co-creator and executive producer of “Space Racers” for an exclusive pre-screening of PBS’s newest animated series. The program for preschoolers follows young spaceship cadets as they soar through the solar system. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at how each animated character was brought to life, hear how NASA scientists and astronauts assisted in the development of the series, plus enjoy an episode of “Space Racers” before it airs locally on Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB).
Space Racers Exclusive Pre-Screening

R.O.A.R. — Robot-Operated Arms Race
Hold on to your motherboards — we just completed a massive overhaul on our robot arm game! The action-packed exhibit is now faster, smoother, and more fun than ever. Engage in some intense robo-battles with your opponent and keep tabs on the action with a video monitor that shows you the game from the robot’s perspective. Be careful though, with all that excitement, you may blow a circuit!
Thanks to Paul McCaslon, who made a personal investment in the refurbishment, and the magic of 3-D printing, the updated exhibit provides a hands-on experience of what it’s like to work (and play!) with real robots. Program a visit to LSM into your schedule today!
