This summer, Cave Creek Museum is offering “Steampunk Science Camp,” a half-day camp (9am-1pm), Monday through Friday, July 8 – 12, 2019, for students entering the fourth through eight grades. We will be exploring the history of science in Arizona and the innovations that propelled our territory into Modern Statehood. Some of the topics we will cover include: regional geology and archaeology; technological innovations that would include the steam locomotive, the gasoline combustion engine, and telecommunications, such as telegraph and telephone; and even space exploration with the discovery of Pluto. Kids will have fun investigating the History of Science in the Desert Southwest, learning how these innovations changed life on the Frontier, and dressing up in Steampunk Style!
