Monday, February 21: Action Art!

Paint, draw, sculpt: Make a shadow box for your treasured collections, lay a colorful mosaic, create giant and tiny art work and bring your imagination to life all day. Use fancy and fun materials and surprising ways to express your creativity through bold and beautiful art.

 

Tuesday, February 22: Amazing Animals!

Do you love all the wild creatures from the forests to the sea? This camp is for you! Get to know nature’s wildest and most amazing animals through their pelts, claws, bones and even poop! Make a wild treat for a critter and one for yourself. Meet real live animals and learn about the way they live. 

 

Wednesday, February 23: Wicked Reactions!

Stand back! We’re going to do science! Put on safety goggles, lab gloves and have fun with fizzy, slimy, bouncy reactions. Discover what happens, when common, safe household chemicals collide! This day is for little chemists and physicists who love to have fun with experiments of all things liquid, solid and in between.

 

Thursday, February 24: Build Bold!

Build and test structures and vehicles that stand tall, carry loads and span space! Use recyclables and your ingenuity to engineer the impossible and practical as you learn about the secret of the Roman arch, earthquake-proof skyscrapers, impossibly long bridges, and test them to the breaking point and beyond.

 

Friday, February 25: The Inside Scoop!

What’s going on inside our amazing bodies that let us jump, run, make, create, and play and what makes unique you, well,… You? Do hands-on, fun experiments about how food fuels the body, where oxygen goes when we breathe, how our brains work, and how DNA makes us who we are. Get up close and personal with your guts, heart and brains, get the scoop on poop and use all your senses and muscles in fun challenges.
