Calling all kids. This exciting camp ventures into many different areas of science. Discover the wonders of electricity, marvel at the mysteries of magnets, test your skills as a detective. Grow crystals, search for dinosaur bones, build a Roman arch bridge, hunt and identify fantastic minerals and much more in this fun-filled, action-packed week.
Science Wonders and Science Sleuth
Become a science investigator and see how science affects the world around us. Examine the fundamentals of chemistry, magnetism and light. Turn ordinary metal into magnetized metal, create a secret message for a friend, and mix the right ingredients to make crystals grow.
Building Art and Movers
Discover the secrets of sturdy structures. Build a Roman arch and experiment with different bridge structures. Investigate the forces that create movement. Build a ring glider, windsock and stunt plane glider as you experiment with lift, aerodynamics, and air pressure.
Space Explorers and Aerospace
Explore the Final Frontier and take a closer look at our solar system – the sun and stars, planets and moons, asteroids and comets. Make a star chart that will help you recognize many stars and constellations. Closer to Earth, discover the wonders of flight as you build and test-fly paper airplanes, a kite and a balsa glider while learning about the four forces that affect flight. Learn the fundamentals of model rocketry, launch a rocket, and experiment with parachutes.
Geology and Water Wonders
Come down to Earth, way down to the core with this Mad Science geology camp day. Watch a mini volcano erupt, dig for dinosaur bones,
make a cast of a dinosaur fossil and hunt for fantastic minerals that you keep. Learn about our ecosystem as you simulate an oil spill, then plan and execute a clean up. Apply the scientific method to liquid densities and make a wave modulator to take home.
