You’ll See So Much to Love about This Overnight Adventure!

Elementary and middle school-age girls interested in medical science are invited to a fun and interactive sleepover all about optical health. 

Saturday night is packed with hands-on activities. To coordinate with the touring exhibition Playing With Light, campers will explore depth perception, peripheral vision, color blindness and more. Educators will conduct a cow eye dissection so future optometrists and ophthalmologists can better understand optical anatomy. Plus, pupils will get to hear from experts to learn more about STEM careers.

After an eye-opening look at the cosmos in The Dome, it's lights out for a memorable “camping” experience inside your favorite museum. 

On Sunday, after fueling up from breakfast, campers get access to Playing With Light. Using basic physics principles, 20+ interactive experiences and a sense of fun, the hands-on exhibition ignites imagination and shines light on discovery. Campers can also explore the Science Museum's Speed and Boost exhibitions, and can take advantage of early access to the gift shop to purchase items to keep the STEM exploration shining bright at home.  

Girls in Medicine Camp In takes place from Saturday, March 25, at 5 p.m. to Sunday, March 26, at 9 a.m. Campers ages 8–14 are welcome.
