Earth, Space and Beyond Camp Description

For Children Entering Grades K-5

Children will discover how to send secret messages using special codes, explore their environment, and find out how science can help us to protect our planet. Your Junior Mad Scientist will learn how Newton's laws are at work in their favorite sports and join the ranks of space scientists examining the mysteries of the solar system! 

Day 1: Mad Messages
Discover how to send secret messages to your friends using special codes! Learn how Morse code works with a real Morse code machine. Create your very own colorful transparency picture that shines like a rainbow. Find out how our special goldenrod paper mysteriously changes from gold to red and back!

Day 2: Earth Awareness
How are we hurting Mother Earth? Discover how science will help us protect our planet. Children will understand the basics of water pollution and acid rain. Take a sun picture of a leaf on our unique sun print paper. Taste your very own solar nachos and recycle as you create your very own paper to take home.

Day 3: The Science of Sports
What do football players, scientists and ballet dancers have in common? Explore how Newton’s Laws of Motion help us learn why we move the way we do and how to improve the sports we play. Campers will test their theories with astroblasters and a challenging egg toss. Learn how to keep your balance as you make a balancing shooting star to take home.

Day 4: Nature
Children learn about flowers and how a white carnation can change colors. Campers will pound real flowers into a mosaic of their own and then continue the process to create their own hats to protect themselves from the sun. They also learn about animals, their habitats, and the foods they eat. Children will even create their very own cast of an animal footprint to take home.

Day 5: Space Day
Campers discover how astronauts live and work in space. How can you get the water to stay in the cup when it is upside down? How does a space suit work to keep astronauts the right temperature? Find out with our thermal paper experiment. Learn how toilet paper can teach you how distant our farthest planet is from earth. Watch a real model rocket launch and propel a water bottle rocket into the sky with just a bike pump.
