Mini-Camp Dates and Themes
October 29: Magic or Science?
Searching for some tricks that aren’t just hocus pocus? From color changing slime to magical magnets, you’ll learn science experiments that will delight your friends and impress your science teachers.
January 21: Science on the Move
Want to build your own crazy – and useful – contraptions? You’ll explore the six types of simple machines, then use wheels and axels to build and race your own clothespin car. Then, apply your machine mastery to your own body as you make a pulley model of the human arm. It’s not a flex, just the basic principles of engineering
April 15: DNA Day
Seeking connection? Learn about your deep connections to everything from chimpanzees to, well, bananas through the science of DNA. From analyzing the basics of base pairs to exploring genetic technology in The Power of Science, you’ll conduct experiments that help you see yourself – and some of Frost Science’s favorite animals – in a new light. Come explore a story 4 billion years in the making!
