About This Activity

Campers will learn various types of rocks and minerals that exist in space and on earth. They will explore how and why space rock is sometimes found on earth, test rock samples, learn how sedimentary layers form, explore how heat and pressure create metamorphic rocks, explore the concept of weathering or how water beats rocks, identify uses of minerals, and use minerals to complete projects. They will learn how crystals form, create a crystal wonderland, conduct an experiment to determine if carbon dioxide raises the temperature of the atmosphere, explore why the ocean does not freeze, learn layers of the earth, model Darcy's law, create rock cycles, and demonstrate water erosion of land masses. Again, specific topics covered by each cohort will vary by age as all projects are designed to be age-appropriate and engaging for participants. Week 7 Field Trip: Friday, August 12. Sterling Hill Mining Museum, NJ Week 8 Field Trip: Thursday, August 18. American Museum of Natural History, NY Eligible: K-8 *Early bird discount of $80 has been applied until March 1. *A $66 discount applies for the celebrations on the last day of camp - August 19. There are no science projects on the last. It's a day we review camp accomplishments with parents, meet special guests, and enjoy good food with our young scientists.
