We’ve taken our after-school club programs from 2017-18 and turned them into a fun-filled week-long camp! Each day we’ll explore a different topic. We’ll make exciting gadgets as we explore electricity. Build a circuit to create a buzzer, make an electromagnet, create a device to detect static charge and construct a working water wheel. Become chemists as we get elbow deep in chemistry. Discover the secret colors in candy, conduct heat sensitive experiments to make “mood slime”, and make a mixture that acts like a liquid AND a solid. Create a chemical reaction to launch film canister rockets, whip up some fizzy bath poppers and mix up a bubbling density concoction. Become engineers as we explore some marvelous machines and discover how they make work easier and more fun! Compete with your friends in a pulley race, construct a lever to make a cool catapult, and explore gears that make wind-up toys. Finally, we’ll create colorful beach bags using chromatography, make super sidewalk chalk and build solar ovens!
