Where could science take YOU this summer? Follow the path of the sun's energy through ecosystems and you could end up in all kinds of cool places! Paddle a kayak to the middle of a lake and find out what organisms are harvesting solar energy in the water. Explore a prairie, then figure out how much energy it stores in a week by burning samples in your own calorimeter. Wander woods and streams on a night hike, tracking down the animals to find out what they eat and how they live. By week's end, you'll report on your discoveries to your fellow campers, family and friends. JOIN US this summer for a Wild Energy Adventure.
