X-Treme Science – STEM Camp – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math for Rising 3rd/4th Grade

BEAT the HEAT as you explore physics, biology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, entomology and forensic science activities.  You really need GUTS to complete our anatomy and physiology activities. But if you don’t, no worries — We’ll bring plenty of REAL organs: cow eyes, sheep BRAINS, cow hearts, stomachs, and kidneys … TOUCH IF YOU DARE!  If that’s not creepy enough, check out our real CREEPY CRAWLIES … YES! BUGS– insects and arachnids! The tarantula and scorpion will, of course, be observed in their contained habitat; but the millipedes, meal worms, beetles, Madagascar hissing roaches, like the guts, are on a TOUCH IF YOU DARE basis!  Become a real ROCKET SCIENTIST when you build and LAUNCH A REAL ESTES™ ROCKET that can reach up to 800 feet and bring it home to launch again and again. Use what you think you know about gravity, friction, aerodynamics and automobiles as you design, build, and RACE a LEGO Car Racer! INVESTIGATE  Forensic Entomology and bones, discuss DNA as a crime solving tool and build 3 foot tall DNA models. Have CSI fun as we practice extracting DNA from bananas and take your sample home. DO BATTLE with the “big bad wolf” as you CREATE the strongest houses you can with “straw, sticks and bricks” then laugh as we try to DESTROY them.  Will yours be the one that cannot be destroyed? “Lighten” your mood as we experiment with the properties of visible light, and explore with tools a scientist uses to make observations such as microscopes, magnifiers, and telescopes.  CONSTRUCT Lego Chemistry sets to model what happens in a chemical reaction, then mix chemicals to make light cause an ongoing color oscillation.  “Explode” with laughter as we ERUPT chemical volcanoes!  Visit our TECH LAB  every day for  a hands-on programming experience using a variety of robots.  Use our laptops and Lego ™ Kits to build Lego™  Mindstorm/EV3 robots and try to meet our CHALLENGE!  PROGRAM with Wonder Workshop’s Dash and Dot ™ robots, use educational tablet apps and have fun in a realm of VIRTUAL REALITY with our VR headsets.  Get “energized” by LEARNING to build an electrical circuit you can bring home and DESIGN a video game with Apple iPads™ and Bloxels ™.
