Do you have a natural curiosity for the world around you? Have you always wondered how things work—or what causes lightning, thunder, explosions, waves, rainbows? If so, we welcome you to bring your curiosity to one of our science camps. Here, you'll get hands-on interaction as you explore the exciting topics of chemistry, physics and light.
Delve deep into chemistry and experience hands-on learning during this camp. Learn about chemical reactivity as illustrated by acid/base reactions, enzymes and various gas laws.
This camp will help students explore some of the fundamental principles of physics including forces, electricity, sound and motion through many hands-on activities, explorations and demonstrations.
Please note: Not available Summer 2013, but will be offered again Summer 2014.
This camp explores the fundamentals of light in an exciting, hands-on way. Learn about fluorescence, phosphorescence and other glow-in-the-dark phenomena. Increase your understanding of ultraviolet light, fluorescent lights, lasers and light-emitting diodes.
