Science Adventures

Campers will use forensic science to solve a crime. A visit to Cell City will reveal the inner workings of DNA while a trip down the Organ Trail will provide a Body Portrait.  Explore the wonders of gravity, balance and the science behind the illusive sweet spot.  Build the strongest helmet for our friend Eggbert in our safe egg challenge. We will discover how to get a rainbow in a test tube and build a Potato Power Plant during a day of radical chemical reactions.

Camp-Day Themes include: At the Scene of the Crime, Organ Trail, Radical Reactions, The Science of Sport, Cell City.

 

The Organ Trail

Students are introduced to the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, skeletal, and muscular systems. In the process they learn about some of the body’s most important parts: the heart, lungs, stomach, brain and more. They listen to their hearts, act as lung and muscle models and observe life-like replicas of our organs.

At the Scene of the Crime…

The importance of observation as part of the scientific method is the day’s first order of business. A mock crime scene is examined; relevant information presented in many formats. Campers are then challenged to sort and sift through the data in an effort to solve the "crime" using forensic techniques.

Cell City

Campers are introduced to several cell organelles and their functions. The membrane, mitochondria, nucleus, ribosome, and lysosome receive most of the attention. At times they will imitate the action of each of these parts with special emphasis on the nucleus and the role of DNA in directing and recreating life. They will learn the basics of the code of life, and make a model of a cell.

Radical Reactions

What holds atoms and molecules together? What happens during chemical reactions? These questions are answered while campers study physical and chemical reactions in depth. These reactions include those that emit heat (exothermic), those that require heat (endothermic), those that proceed at a very fast pace and reactions that occur in spite of the fact they shouldn’t!

The Science of Sport

What do football players, scientists and ballet dancers have in common? Explore how Newton helps us learn why we move the way we do and improve the games we play. Campers experiment with games and activities while learning how physical and chemical sciences affect their equipment, movement, and technique.
