As the days get warmer, have you started wondering about your kids' summer schedules? While there are many opportunities to learn and have fun in the greater Tri-Cities area, early birds will be able to pick classes that are more compatible with their kids' interests and strengths. To help our readers with the process, we will print a series of articles on Summer Camp opportunities in your neighborhood and within easy driving distance.

For the first in our series, here are some science summer programs for the young inventors and explorers in your home:
