Explorations V Children’s Museum received an Impact Polk 2017 grant for their “ACE” Achievers Camp at Explorations. This camp will provide up to 15 elementary students from low income homes in the Polk County area with eight weeks of free or subsidized hands-on adventures in learning at STEAM Summer Camp and tutoring. Students will engage in weekly themed art and science activities, museum exploration, and daily remediation/tutoring in small groups using fun, interactive, exciting games and activities. Congratulations! Sounds like a fun summer for these kids!
