NORTH MANKATO — When it comes to summer activities, some kids have it all figured out.
Or they are spending a few days trying anyway.
This year South Central College is hosting a three-day “CSI” camp (like the TV crime shows) that focuses on solving “crimes” by using science.
Pre-teens and teens have chemistry, biology, computer-integrated machining and other academic tools at their disposal to work on figuring out a few mysteries.
The camp finishes up today on the North Mankato campus.
Both South Central College and Minnesota State University typically offer academic camps during the summer to school-age kids.
Camps already completed at MSU have focused on robotics and math.
Another SCC camp that starts this week is focusing on building a musical instrument.
Next week a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) camp for girls will be offered at SCC.
