Science camps allow students to "Get their hands dirty"

Students in the state of Kentucky scored a "D" in the content area of science last year and some folks are hoping to improve that score with a new program.

The hands-on approach to learning is allowing kids natural curiosity to overflow

Club Scientific Bluegrass helps kids by using hands-on experiences with science.

The method is proving popular with both student and parents

Students laughed as they learned and got their hands dirty as they engaged in some exciting experiments.

The instructors say that the classroom isn't necessarily the best place to learn. The hands-on activities helps teach them the basics of science, but they're also able to have fun at the same time.

The multi-sensory way of learning is making science accessible and potentially making students successful in that industry

Instructors say even Einstein wasn't successful in the classroom, so they believe this innovative program could produce the next Einstein in eastern Kentucky.
