OUTDOOR EXPLORERS: Did you ever wonder why your shadow changes size or who lives in a pond? How animals and humans interact in the environment? Campers will find out the answers to these and other questions as they take a morning walking tour of the Science Center’s 7-acres including the Nature Trail and Wetland areas. Fun projects will include recyclable art.
T-REX & FRIENDS: What should you do if you see a 20-foot T-Rex in your backyard? Well for one thing don’t let your pets out. This oversized carnivore is one of the many dinosaurs you will study in this class. We will read stories and make crafts. In the afternoon some of our resident reptiles will be paying our class a visit.
GLOBAL SAFARI: Safari comes from the Swahili word for journey so grab your safari hats and hiking boots and spend the morning on a journey to the four corners of the globe, without leaving the comfort of your classroom. Explore the steamy forests of the Amazon and the sub-zero temperatures of the Arctic Tundra as you examine the world’s wildlife and food webs. Some of our resident animals will be stopping by for you to meet them.
SUPER SCIENCE LAB: Who lives in a drop of pond water? How many calories are in a Cheeto? What is a non-Newtonian fluid? Spend your afternoon learning the answers and becoming familiar with the use of laboratory equipment such as Beakers, Flasks, Scales and Microscopes as we do investigations and experiments in the fields of Chemistry, Meteorology, Biology, and Food Science.
*Minimum program requirement, students must be enrolled in Kindergarten or older.
Campers will participate in both classes for their age group.
