Science lab campers learn how to make jellyfish

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Weeks before the first day of school, a group of students were back at St. Francis in Quincy learning in their new science lab.

The lab and supplies were bought with a $30,000 grant from the Tracey Family Foundation.

Students in 1st-4th grades used the lab as part of Science Camp Week, making everything from jellyfish to pop-rockets.

"Getting to know the kids and making them realize that learning isn't just about sitting around reading a book or doing whatever," said Science Teacher Shaun Carey. "You can get out, get your hands dirty and have a lot of fun doing it."

Science Lab Camp continues through the end of the week.
