During this camp, discover ways that art and science illuminate what it means to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Starting at Discovery Gateway, use your imagination to transform trash into treasure. Create unique works of art with unusual materials and unearth the essential reasons why we recycle through science experiments and hands-on projects. Then, head to Utah Museum of Contemporary Art to explore recycled materials in art, gain inspiration from the outdoors, and use the fundamentals of art as a springboard for creating a functional outdoor sculpture in UMOCA’s gardens.
Children will travel to UMOCA with Discovery Gateway educators via TRAX
