At the 2007 Summer Explosives Camp you will have the unique opportunity to have hands-on learning experience with explosives: the first and only camp of its kind! The course will comprise a variety of lectures, demonstrations, handling & shooting of explosives, field trips, projects and culminate in the setup and shooting of a fireworks display. It will encompass detonators, high explosives, blasting agents, rock blasting, display fireworks and demolition. You will have a behind- the-scenes look at how explosives are used in industry and in entertainment. But the number one thing that you will do at the Summer Explosives Camp is have fun!http://distance.umr.edu/files/pdf/2007_ExplosivesBrochure.pdfhttp://distance.umr.edu/NonCredit/PreCollege/2007_Explosives_Camp.htmlhttp://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/03/science/03boom.html?ex=1341115200&en=5a34344a682941aa&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss
