Bernard C. Watson Boys Academy recently announced a unique partnership that will provide both male and females students age 12-14 years old the opportunity to attend U.S. Space & Rocket Camp in Huntsville, AL in Summer 2017.
The partnership is with DSH Entertainment, Inc. and it is to give parents who have children interested in careers in aviation or aeronautics the chance to take advantage of a lifetime event through a scholarship. DSH Entertainment is seeking to award four fully paid scholarships. The curriculum is offered in six day sessions designed to balance education and entertainment.
The Space Camp, operated by the Alabama Space Science Center, provides residential day camp and educational programs for children including space oriented camp programs, aircraft themed Aviation Challenge camps, and outdoor oriented X-Camp programs. These programs are designed to promote science, math, engineering, aviation, and exploration.
On Monday, February 27 at 6:00 p.m., an informational session explaining the criteria for eligibility will be held at Bernard C. Watson Academy, 2065 Mississippi St, Gary, IN. The event is free and open to everyone. For more information or to RSVP, contact Principal Maceo Rainey at (219) 886-6569.
