VAIL — Summer Science Camp returns to the Vail Public Library, Monday through Wednesday with a new teacher, Nanette Dietrich, Ph.D., associate professor at Millersville University in Millersville, Pennsylvania.

This year’s free, three-day, hands-on science program for ages 9 through 12 is titled Model My Watershed. Everyone lives in a watershed, and children are invited to come learn about theirs.

DEVELOPING SOLUTIONS

Campers will be exploring the local stream, as wells as Gore Creek, and using scientifically valid and easy-to-use watershed tools to accurately examine the neighborhood, define local environmental challenges and develop solutions.

Support Local Journalism

Dietrich and her family are repeat summer visitors to Vail and loyal Vail Public Library patrons. Her kids have participated in previous Summer Science Camps here, and she has offered to share her expertise with the community. Dietrich truly loves to get kids excited about science, and campers will benefit from her current research project on water.
