Orangeburg, N.Y. - Does your child spend the afternoon digging for dinosaur bones in the backyard? Can she not stop playing with Legos? Has your son turned your kitchen into a laboratory for his interesting, yet messy experiments?

Encourage that scientific enthusiasm this summer at the Super Science for Kids program at the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University.

Made up of a team of dedicated teachers and well-qualified science enthusiasts, Super Science for Kids features nine different courses over a five-week period designed to make learning science fun. Offerings include Chemical Magic, a fun-filled “magical” laboratory experience Harry Potter-style; Lego Star Wars and Motorized Machines, where young enthusiasts can build an adventure from a Star Wars galaxy; Crime Scene Investigation-CSI Science, where kids learn about forensics, crime scene investigation, and crime lab chemistry while performing experiments designed to show how tricky cases are solved; and Bridges, Towers and Structural Engineering, where participants use simple materials to construct bridges, towers and houses.

Classes are three and a half hours each and will be held from July 7 through August 15. The cost is $139 per five-day session. The hands-on workshops are geared toward children ages 7 to 12, with modifications for kids ages 7 to 9.

Super Science for Kids, LLC, is owned and operated by Dan Weissman, a sixth grade science teacher from the Hampton Township School District. Weissman is a national winner of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Math Teaching. All Super Science classes are taught by certified teachers with the assistance of a teacher aide.

The Rockland Graduate Campus is located at 70 Route 340 in Orangeburg, N.Y. For more information call (845) 359-7200, ext. 5434 or visit www.liu.edu/rockland
