Remember when Cape Cod was primarily a place for whale hunting? Those days are past, but in mid-August, Cape Cod will be a whale of a good time for some middle school makers. Cape Cod Community College, in West Barnstable, will be hosting Summer of Solar Science Aug. 12-16. The fee for this week long camp is quite affordable at $225, which includes snacks, lunch, and harpoons. Wait, not harpoons. There will be no harpoons at this summer camp.

Now get out of my sight you landlubber. Move along now. Yarrrr!
