About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, December 30, 2016.

How do plants grow, live, and eat? How do we travel into outer space? What powers humans and our homes? All of our greatest scientific advancements started with a question. In "How Things Work?"young scientists set out to find answers! Students will learn how animals track scents and follow a trail of amazing aromas. We'll delve into natural dyes found in plants and even make our own paper! Blast off to fun when we explore rocket science and the physics of flight. Learn from the designs of great inventors like Alexander Graham Bell, Nikola Tesla, and Leonardo DaVinci. Discover the dynamic bustling city of organelles that is our cells. Take a journey through circuitry and test for "invisible" conductors. "How Things Work" is a fantastic week of experimenting with zany xylem, building your own rocket to launch and witnessing indoor lightning strikes! Each day campers will create and take home a project to remind them of what they learned during each awesome day of camp. $20 lab fee included.
