Children love going to amusement parks and experiencing the fast, dropping and spinning rides, but have they thought about the science that goes into building and designing them? In this class, students will become engineers of their own amusement park rides and learn the core physics and engineering concepts used to make a ride thrilling! Students will explore: - The scientific method and engineering design process - Logical problem-solving strategies - Mechanical movement and energy - Potential and kinetic energy, gears, pulleys, motors This camp is led by Snapology. *Camp Program Pairing Notice: Due to health and safety considerations, Summer at Blake will not offer pairing opportunities between half-day specialty camps or our Acoma day camp program.
