Darwin Week and Charleston STEM Festival

piccolo-logo1-200pxCamp Quest South Carolina will participate in the College of Charleston’s Piccolo Darwin Week, which is also part of the 2014 STEM Festival. We’ll have a table set up at the kick-off event this Saturday, February 8, from 10am to 3pm at Liberty Square in downtown Charleston.

Evolution of the Universe…in a Necklace  – A bead for the galaxies, a bead for our solar system, a bead for life, and a bead for us ourselves! Participants will be able to easily recount the story of life after making a beautiful necklace of beads highlighting the major evolutionary events. There will be a retelling of the origin of the universe from the big bang to you.  (2013 campers will recognize this from a a similar necklace we made at camp this past summer.)

We are very excited to participate in this first-ever celebration of evolutionary science for children and youth!  If you’re in Charleston, please stop by!  We’ll be in the College of Charleston tent.
