Science

Are you curious about the world? Learn about scientific thought and methods while exploring the most interesting principles of biology, chemistry and physics. Using a hands-on approach in a real college laboratory, campers will experiment and create everything from robots to rockets.



Each week is a separate topic, and there is no prerequisite knowledge needed. All young scientists are welcome! 



 

2019 Curriculum


Each week the Science program will follow a common theme. Experiments and projects will be diversified and adjusted for the age of the campers. Pick your weeks now!

Weekly Curriculum 2019

.
Week 1 - July 1st to July 5th
Water and Buoyancy -- One of the most abundant substances on Earth has some amazing properties! Investigate uses of water and some of its characteristics.
 Week 2 - July 8th to July 12th
Biology -- Explore living organisms and what makes them go. Campers will examine what makes animals work.
 Week 3 - July 15th to July 19th
Chemisty -- Join us for some fun experiments this summer! We look at different chemical interactions and how molecules interact.
 Week 4 - July 23rd to July 27th
Robots / Engineering -- See how robots can make our lives easier. We will build kits and experiment with different electric and mechanical structures. 
 Week 5 - July 29th to August 2nd
Locomotion -- Why do things move? Explore the forces applied to movement, and how they are dictated by Newton’s Laws. Test it all out by building different types of moving things!
 Week 6 - August 5th to August 9th
Rockets -- Come explore how rockets work. We learn about what affects aerodynamics then build and launch our own rockets! Great week to finish the summer!
