Young people this weekend will be able to learn about summer educational opportunities at Kopernik Observatory and Science Center.

A free open house event will be held at the Vestal educational complex on Saturday.

Organizers say students will have an opportunity to find out about summer camps that will explore a range of topics related to science, technology, engineering and math.

The camps will be open to students who are currently in grades one through twelve.
