Summer Camp Offerings Grades Pre K – 5

Week 1 – Matters About Matter
June 10 – June 14 (Register Now – Online registration closes Thursday, June 6 at 5:00 p.m.)

Explore the principles of chemistry and physics as you investigate a fundamental question, what is matter? Experiment with different states of matter and chemical reactions by testing the surface tension of bubbles, splicing and reconnecting water, making non-Newtonian fluids, changing temperature to make ice crystals and even creating a cloud indoors!

Week 2 – Ocean Exploration
June 17 – June 21 (Register Now – Online registration closes Thursday, June 13 at 5:00 p.m.)

We are embarking on an expedition to the great blue sea! Channel your inner marine biologist and get ready to encounter the diverse living organisms that live underwater, from the oceans’ surface to its mysterious deep. Get your feet wet and dive into science with hands-on activities on mapping the ocean floor, marine life adaptations, ocean motion and even identifying the various species of marine life in our own Aquarium.

Week 3 – The Amazing Human Body
June 24 – June 28 (Register Now – Online registration closes Thursday, June 20 at 5:00 p.m.)

From the microbiome in our gut to the biomechanics involved in walking and talking, we are examining the science of the human body! Follow a red blood cell through the circulatory system while learning the basics of hands-on CPR, test the breaking point of bones that result in fractures before designing a cast to improve the healing process and even analyze DNA to learn how we are all unique and yet connected. You won’t want to skip a (heart)beat!

Week 4 – Art + Science Lab*
July 1 – July 3 (Register Now – Online registration closes Thursday, June 27 at 5:00 p.m.)

From gravity to colors, we are exploring the hidden science in creating art! Stimulate your senses to make your own sound wave portraits, understand differences in density by applying oil and water-based colors to a blank canvas, experiment with gravity through splatters and even explore electricity concepts like open versus closed circuits with an artistic twist. This lab is sure to add a colorful spin to your summer!

Week 5 – Micro World
July 8 – July 12 (Register Now – Online registration closes Thursday, July 4 at 5:00 p.m.)

We are zooming in to the world of microscopic living and non-living things to make them larger than life! Make your own bacteria model, excavate for microplastics and investigate the diverse adaptations of the smallest of marine life: plankton. Then, launch into outer space and discover how scientists are using microbes to explore the possibility of life on other planets.

Week 6 – Extreme Earth
July 15 – July 19 (Register Now – Online registration closes Thursday, July 11 at 5:00 p.m.)

Flowing hot lava up to 2,200 F, winds of over 200 mph, a wave over 1,500 feet high, Earth has major extremes from natural disasters to harsh habitats. Construct a volcanic eruption, earthquake-proof your own skyscraper and investigate the science behind the wind and waves of a hurricane. Discover how life can survive in even the harshest of environments before brainstorming and designing ways to keep ourselves safe and prepared from all these the extremes.

Week 7 – Cool Cosmos
July 22 – July 26 (Register Now – Online registration closes Thursday, July 18 at 5:00 p.m.)

Shoot for the stars and explore the vastness of outer space and its various celestial objects like moons, planets, asteroids, comets and stars! Our journey begins by exploring properties of light, gravity and magnetism in our own solar system and continues out into the universe with the search for exoplanets. From the future of space robotics and imaging to designing how to establish a colony in outer space, young astronomers and astrobiologists are sure to have a blast!

Week 8 – Eco Engineering
