Join us for a week full of creations, chemistry and cameras! Work together with your fellow engineers to build the best bridge in our shake, rattle and roll challenge. Turn your daily newspaper into a four foot high Geodesic Dome that you can sit in with your friends. Explore the world of birds and beasts with bird house building and our super bug investigation. Mix, mash and brew concoctions to create cool sidewalk chalk and bath fizzers during a day in the chemistry lab. Discover the wonders of photography as you study cameras, light and colours.
BBB-Birds and the Beasts
Where do owls live and what do they eat? How do some bugs walk on water? How do ants collect their food? These questions and more will be answered with a walk on the wild side of things to explore owls, birds and all kinds of bugs.
BBB-Crazy Chemistry
Become a Mad Science chemist as you learn all about the chemistry of things that you encounter everyday in your home. Discover how chemical reactions are everywhere and how you can figure out if a chemical change has occurred right before your eyes!
BBB-Jr. Engineers
Check out shapes and why they are so strong. Investigate arches, and geodesic domes. Discover why an eggs shape is so strong and how you can find this shape in buildings. Build some bridges when you put on an engineers hat and learn about structures!
BBB-Machine Mania
Find out how wedges,screws and levers help us with our daily lives. Use simple machines to complete different tasks like lifting weights and launching marshmallows. Run through an obstacle course and use teamwork to show how useful simple machines can be.
How does a camera work? What does a lens do? How do our eyes work? What is a camera obscura? How does film capture light and store an image? All these questions and more are answered in this hands-on camp day!
