Flight Academy

The week will fly by as we travel through time looking at the earliest flying machines right up to modern day rocket launches. We’ll cover it all. Become a Junior Aviator and discover the principals of flight and aerodynamics. Zip up your space suit for a planetary tour while we investigate the wonders of our very own Milky Way.  Join your fellow astronauts as we send an awesome Mad Science rocket to the moon…well at least into the sky! As Mad Science Technicians, you will build sundials, Bead Dippers, parachutes and an incredible wind tunnel simulator. It will be a blast!


Camp-Day Themes include:
The “Wright” Stuff, It’s an Up Thing, The Milky Way, Newton’s Loco-Motion and Rockin’ Rockets.

 

The “Wright” Stuff

Children will explore the fundamentals of aerodynamics in this hands-on program about how things fly. From the basic principles of flight to building airplanes, testing them in wind tunnels, to hovercraft and balloon helicopter building, children will understand what makes things fly and how different types of aircraft fly. Campers will take home  various paper airplane designs, balloon helicopters, hovercrafts, boomerangs and mini Frisbeesâ.

Up, Up, & Away 

This program will explore the role that wind and the movement of air plays on simple flying devices such as kites, hot air balloons and parachutes. Children will experiment with solar bags, parachutes and build their own kites and parachutes during this hands-on look at early flight.

The Milky Way

What is the Milky Way and how do we know what’s up there? Children will explore the celestial sphere, learn about celestial navigation and build their own sextant, sundial, planisphere and Bead Dipper model while discovering the wonders of the Milky Way.

Newton’s Loco-Motion

Sir Isaac Newton was very curious about how things move. Discover Newton’s Laws of Motion and something called inertia in this hands-on program all about motion. Children will experiment to learn how inertia works and how gravity is a physical force that keeps all objects “stuck” to the Earth. They will build a Satellite Launcher” to take home to continue their exploration of motion at home.

Rockin’ Rockets

Campers will learn the fundamentals of rocketry throughout this day including the parts of a rocket, the stages of rocket flight and how Newton’s third law applies to a rocket traveling to space. The children will build their own Skyblazer rockets, experiment with water rockets and stomp rockets during this fun, day filled with hands-on activities.
