     HAMMOND – “Gizmo's Gadgets and Goop,” the first of the Southeastern Academic Adventure camps scheduled for July, will be held July 7-11, 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at the Southeastern Laboratory School cafeteria.

     During the week-long camp, children ages 7-12 will experience the thrill of building electronic gadgets while learning basic principles of electricity. They will explore the science behind batteries, bulbs and buzzers and enter the Invention Dimension to design and create motorized K’Nex racers, roller coasters, planes and more.

     Cost is $215 for the week-long camp and before and after care is available from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. for an additional $10.

     Southeastern camps also coming up in July are the Southeastern Music Festival, July 7-18; “Extreme Sports Science,” July 21-25; and “Science Detectives,” July 28 – Aug. 1.

     “The deadline for each camp is two weeks before the starting date,” Camps Coordinator Linda Munchausen reminded parents.
