This week, almost two dozen children participated in Jefferson Lab's popular Summer Science Camp for Deaf and Hard-Of-Hearing Youth, designed to meet the needs of rising fourth- through eighth-grade students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. Now in its fifth year, this free week-long camp offers hands-on science activities presented in a barrier-free environment for youth in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
