Science Topics for the week:

 

Forensic Science

Do you enjoy Finding a culprit with techniques that use Forensic Science? Learn how these techniques work and enjoy being a great detective.

 

Rockets

Do you dream about going to space? Want to design, build, and fly your very own model rocket? You can - in this introduction to the exciting world of rocketry!

 

Rocks and Crystals

Here is a camp you'll find just a taste of some of the knowledge behind rocks, gems and minerals. From how a crystal is formed, or where in the world a mineral type can be found, to what makes one gemstone more valuable than another.

 

Electrical Engineering

Do you enjoy playing with toys and gadgets that use electrical circuits and electricity? Learn how these items work and enjoy building several fun circuits that will create light and sound effects. We will use squishy circuits techniques.  You can create your own batteries and use in your circuits.

 

Chemistry Experiments 

Have you ever noticed how many different chemicals we use every day? What are they all for? You will study what they are and how they affect the human body.

 

Bugs and Insects

Visit the fascinating world of bugs and insects, the most diverse groups of animals on the planet. Learn about their environment, habitat, and life cycles. Are the insects and bugs our friends or enemy? Campers will create their own dioramas.

1:47 PM 12/28/2014

 

Solar System

Lean fun facts about the planets and their moons. Look at the asteroid belt, which lies between Mars and Jupiter. Design your own planet based on the properties you learned.

 

Mass, Density, and Volume

Campers will participate in hands-on experiments to learn how the density of a material varies with temperature and pressure and what happens when you mix liquids with different densities. Find out how the density, mass and volume of an object are related. Perform fun experiments to understand the concept of what sinks and what floats.

 

Kinetic and Potential Energy

Have you seen an object hanging off of a glider or falling from a height? How does a rocket go into space and orbit around a planet? Campers will learn what forces act on objects.

 

Optics

Learn about optics, an exciting branch of physics! Learn about the reflective and refractive properties of light and how these are used in astronomy, engineering, and photography. Perform hands-on experiments using mirrors, lenses, telescopes, and microscopes. Campers get to create their own periscope or kaleidoscope to take home.

 

Machines

Have you seen machines and tools that help us complete tasks more efficiently? Learn about different types of machines and participate in the creative design of a machine.

 

Electrical Engineering

Do you enjoy playing with toys and gadgets that use electrical circuits and electricity? Learn how these items work and enjoy building several fun circuits that will create light and sound effects.
