SCIENCE
Campers grab your lab coats! Campers will assume the role of a Citizen Scientist and perform hands-on activities just like today’s research scientists in the laboratory. Campers will take a look at techniques, skills and processes and dissections through scientific investigation of bones and beaks of mammals and our feathered friends.
TECHNOLOGY
With our detailed knowledge of basic functions of technology and simple machines, we’ll make our own “mechanical” hand.
ENGINEERING
As an introduction to ocean exploration and the technology used in marine sciences, you’ll build your very own submersible ROV (remotely operated vehicle). We’ll learn basic principles about how your underwater robot functions: structure, buoyancy, tether, power and movement.
ART
Creativity can be expressed in many ways. It’s not just about paint and brushes anymore. Campers will express their imagination and technical skills (designing, building, decorating, and drawing) producing individual and collaborative works in daily activities that reflect the subjects found in nature, aquatic life and wildlife.
MUCH MORE
Campers will also get to interact with native wildlife species during live demonstrations. They can work with a crime scene investigator inside a mobile forensic lab and will get to design and build their own kite, a Rube Goldberg simple machine and solve a McKee Mystery using forensic science.
