PHOENIX -- Still looking for something fun for your kids to do over spring break? Arizona Science Center is kicking off APS Solar Month in March with plenty of activities and camps for young ones.

The event invites visitors to explore and discover the numerous abilities of the sun and its contribution to renewable energy. Through hands-on exhibits, programs and activities, guests will be able to see all the amazing ways our nearest star impacts life on this planet.

And if your kids are interested in space, they''ll love the spring break camps being offered at the Science Center. "We have a spring break camp that's actually about space," staffers tell us.

Kids will embark on a journey that will take them to the moon and beyond! Campers will investigate and explore the tools, methods and sciences all astronauts need to know to accomplish the ultimate task: space travel.
