The first was for 10-year-old students and the second for 11-year-olds. The students, who were from the Movin’ On Up daycare center, learned about the science of flight, rockets, robots, quad copters and parachutes. The students also went on a field trip to the Range Control Center and Armitage Field. Nearly 40 students participated in the science camp, which was jointly sponsored by the China Lake Museum Foundation, and the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division through an educational partnership agreement. -- U.S. Navy photo by Frank Markarian
