BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - If you're looking for something fun and educational for your kids to do over spring break, check out the Tech Explorer camp going on at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History.

Kids age four through twelve will have the chance to learn about simple machines, robots, electricity, and more.

Kids aren't the only ones that can have fun though. The museum's current exhibit is all about the history of home computers and video games.

"You can tell the kids 'Remember when I used to dial up and it was terrible and call waiting would knock you offline'. It's basically a lot of fun for adults. In fact, they are the ones that spend most of the time in the gaming room," explained Rebecca Ingram, the curator of exhibits and collections at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History.

You can sign up for spring break camp by calling the museum at 979-776-2195 or by stopping by the museum during business hours.

Pre-registration is required, but you can sign up for single days of camp. The topic for Thursday, March 15th is electricity and on Friday they will be learning about rockets and more.

Camp is from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Before camp and after camp care is available for $5.00 per hour.

Camp is $45 per day for museum members and $50 for non-members.

The Bits and Bytes exhibit about the innovation of home computers is up until June 2nd, 2018.

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is located at 3232 Briarcrest Drive in Bryan.
