The University of Tennessee Space Institute recently hosted the annual UTSI Science Camp for fourth and fifth graders. Local students enjoyed a week of exciting experiments such as creating their own ice crystals, rain gauges, and kaleidoscopes, growing snow, and studying the structure of bubbles. A new adventure awaited these young scholars each day of camp, including even more scientific fun provided by the Hands-On Science Center. The week ended with a bang as students put their collective feet down sending “stomp rockets” sailing into the sky.
