2016 School’s Out Day Camps

Girl shooting off rocket outside - WinterChildren in grades 1-5 will enjoy their day off school having fun in these all-new programs!

Messy, Mad Science
Monday, February 15

Making a mess is generally frowned upon, but here we will experiment with everything from slime to silly putty to gaseous compounds of foaming, fizzing and bubbling explosions! Some of the hands-on experiments will get grubby, so be sure to wear your lab coat (or old clothes you don’t mind getting dirty in the name of learning).

  • Delve into the world of slime and gak to create Galaxy Slime
  • Create homemade silly putty to bounce, stretch and copy
  • Explore chemical reactions and turn film canisters into rockets

Friday, March 4 
It's time to think of the box and let your imagination run wild! Join us as we become art-scientists and junior engineers. Cooking and concoctions are all science, too!

  • Inspect the elements of structure as you build and test toothpick towers 
  • Make your own sundial as you discover what the universe has to do with telling time
  • Mix and measure different ingredients to create your very own dessert bars
