Campers will use forensic science to solve a crime. A visit to Cell City will reveal the inner workings of DNA while a trip down the Organ Trail will provide a Body Portrait. Explore the wonders of gravity, balance and the science behind the illusive sweet spot. Build the strongest helmet for our friend Eggbert in our safe egg challenge. We will discover how to get a rainbow in a test tube and build a Potato Power Plant during a day of radical chemical reactions.
DDD-At the Scene of the Crime
The importance of observation as part of the scientific method is the day’s first order of business. A mock crime scene is examined. Campers are challenged to sort through the data in an effort to solve the "crime" using forensic techniques.
DDD-Radical Reactions
What holds atoms and molecules together? What happens during chemical reactions? These questions are answered while campers study physical and chemical reactions in depth.
DDD-Science of Sport
What do football players, scientists and ballet dancers have in common? Explore how Newton helps us learn why we move the way we do and improve the games we play.
DDD-The Organ Trail
Students are introduced to the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, skeletal, and muscular systems. In the process they learn about some of the body’s most important parts: the heart, lungs, stomach, brain and more.
