X-Treme Science – STEM Camp – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math for Rising 5th/6th Grade

*** Registration for Summer 2019 will open December 21, 2018.  Updated Camp descriptions will be available early January 2019. (The current camp description is for last summer)

Get ready for a week of X-TREME SCIENCE and ENGINEERING!  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 Build and LAUNCH  an ESTES™ ROCKET that can reach up to 800 feet and bring it home to launch again and again.  Make a big splash in the world of engineering design as you and your friends work to TRANSPORT fuel to LAUNCH what may be your first but by no means final shot at being a real rocket scientist.  MIX CHEMICALS as you make a bounce ball that fluoresces under a black light. CONSTRUCT Lego Chemistry sets to model what happens in a chemical reaction, then do a chemical reaction to make light cause an ongoing color oscillation.  EXPLORE spectroscopy in our optics lab, EXPERIMENT with polarized filters and find hidden picture images.  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? Keep destroying as you try to CRUSH your friend’s bot during free explore with Battle Bots™ RC robots.    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 others, like the millipedes, meal worms, Madagascar hissing roaches and beetles are on a TOUCH IF YOU DARE basis!  Visit our TECH LAB  every day for  a hands-on programming experience using a variety of ROBOTS.  Can you use laptops and Lego ™ Kits to BUILD Lego ™ Mindstorm/EV3 robots and 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 ™.
