Use equipment from the world-famous Salk Institute in an investigation of bioscience at the Biotech Bootcamp Summer Camp. Throughout the week, you’ll have a chance to explore various biotechnology techniques, including DNA extractions, electrophoresis, bacterial transformations and polymerase chain reactions.
Please note: an additional materials fee is required for this class.
July 15–19, 1 p.m.–4 p.m.
The Fleet runs weekly, half-day summer camps in 2013 from June 24 to August 23. The majority of our camps are geared for kids in Grades 1–2 and Grades 3–4, but we also offer camps for Pre-K and Grades 5–8 on selected weeks. The camps are designed to be fun, educational and hands-on and to incorporate the Fleet’s exhibit galleries.
To further enhance the summer camp experience and as a convenience to you, many Balboa Park institutions—including the Fleet—coordinate their half-day summer camps so kids can spend a full day in the park. Staff members at participating institutions escort children from one camp to another during a supervised lunch hour. This means that a child can be dropped off at a morning camp at the Fleet and picked up from an afternoon camp at a different venue. Parking is limited during summer months so please plan accordingly.
