Science Explorers
Rockin' Concoctions (June 27-June 30, 9:00AM-12:00PM)  cancelled 5/24/2022
Ages: 7-11

We’ve taken our after-school club topics from 2021-2 and turned them into a fun-filled week-long camp! We’ll explore the science of kitchen chemistry, travel back in time to discover the mysteries of the Earth, examine the world of wacky creatures, and become a Science Explorers CSI! Campers will discover the amazing transformation of cream to butter, grow crystals, erupt volcanoes, mine for gemstones, create slug-slime, learn how to lift fingerprints and extract DNA from bananas.

Fizz, Bang, Boom, Bot! (July 11-July 14, 9:00AM-12:00PM)
Ages: 7-11
What do you get when you take the physics of motion, add in some electrifying experiments, and mix it up with some chemistry? Everyone has a blast! You’ll create your own battery-powered invention, experiment with light and flight, make your own kaleidoscope and experiment with giant floating bubbles.

Far Out Space Academy (July 18-July 21, 9:00AM-12:00PM)
Ages: 7-11

3…2…1 BLAST OFF to discovering space and flight! Campers will explore the stars and constellations as you take an out-of-this-world sky tour in our homemade planetarium, prepare for lift-off as you build and launch your own rocket while learning about Newton’s Laws of Motion, complete a mission to Mars as you design and build your own model space station and work in engineering teams to construct space capsules that will be used to launch “eggstronauts!"

Take a Dive (July 25-July 28, 9:00AM-12:00PM)
Ages: 7-11

Dive into the world of marine biology and oceanography! You’ll dissect a real shark, participate in a fisherman’s challenge, examine the anatomy of a fish and learn the ancient technique of gyotaku or “fish rubbing,” learn to survive at sea with a homemade solar still, create a kelp forest and make your own submarine.
