Discovery Day Camps No School Days
Spring Break 2017:
Monday, April 10 – Aviation Day
Test your own theories of flight as we learn about the women and men who made aviation exploration their life’s passion. -You’ve probably heard of Amelia Earhart, but what do you know about Bessie Coleman, first African American female pilot? We’ll investigate flight with Leonardo Da Vinci, design and create our own flight contraptions, and launch our own “hot air balloon”.
Tuesday, April 11 – Space and Beyond
Make your own stomp rocket and launcher, and experience the challenges of calculating a “launch window” into space to hit a target. We’ll even learn to use a telescope, create an alien habitat, and examine NASA pictures of other planets within our solar system.
Wednesday, April 12 – Tree Huggers
Yes, we love our trees! Learn about our Northwest habitat and what makes our region such a treasure of biodiversity! Young explorers will make and use their own nature journals, identify native plants and their important uses for indigenous cultures, investigate forest duff, and even take home their own tree seedlings.
Thursday, April 13 – Simply Shocking
How many ways can you light a light bulb? Explore the principles of electricity, and create circuit pathways to light a single and series of light bulbs, fuel a clock with a variety of fruits and veggies, and create your own simple motorized toy!
Friday, April 14 – That’s Gross
Join us for a day of gross science! We’ll play with polymers and make slime, investigate the PH behind the digestive process, and dig in with our favorite decomposers. Help us make a Museum worm bin, and more!
