CHEMystery (9:00am-12:00pm) ages 7-12
Make liquids, bubble, fizz and change color! Campers will conduct experiments, observe fascinating results and discover the properties of household products. They will also use their senses and analytical skills to identify our mystery liquids!

Messy! (1:00pm-4:00pm) ages 7-12
They're chemistry experiments but they're also works of art that you can take home! We'll get messy as we learn about fluid movement, secretive ink, hidden rainbows, color mixing, and more.

Monday, December 30th
Castles and Catapults (9:00am-12:00pm) ages 6-12
Design and build a catapult- then prepare for battle! Build a castle that can hold its own against the onslaught of an attack. Who will reign supreme when the dust has settled?

Crime Science (1:00pm-4:00pm) ages 8-13
Using various scientific techniques, we will detect and identify fingerprints! Then we will use what we've learned to compare evidence and analyze different suspects.

Make-A-Bot (9:00am-12:00pm) ages 9-13
For the first time ever, we are offering a camp based on robots! We'll make little wobbly electronic friends that won't just move- they'll be able to create art!

Puppet Show (1:00pm-4:00pm) ages 9-13
With simple linkages, pivots, rods, and levers, we'll make unique movable puppets! By applying very simple mechanical concepts to this creative project, our characters will have the opportunity to put on a little shadow puppet show for interested onlookers!
