MLK Center hosts NASA summer camp

South Bend, Ind. It's never too late to learn about the earth or even our own galaxy.

More than sixty children learned about the planets in our solar system this morning at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community center.

The NASA Ignite Summer Camp held activities and lessons for children to understand or re-learn more about the stars.

The kids had to use math and critical thinking skills to find out how old they'd be on other plants like Mercury, Venus and Mars.

Organizers emphasized that academics continue during the summer; not just physical or athletic camps.

Either way, the kids are having fun and can use the information in the long run.

"Our students are being familiarized with science, math robotics, and the overall hope is that we're conditioning our students to still compete in the job market and become better members of our community,” Antonius Northern, Team Leader at MLK Community Center, said.
Robotics and rocketry camps are scheduled starting next week.
