Does your child love building things, inventing and shooting off rockets? If so, Science Discovery Camp is the place your child will want to be this summer. No science experience necessary.
Steven Wade (aka “Science Steve”), a National Board Certified Teacher and a member of Penn Charter’s science department and Lower School faculty, will be teaching this week-long science camp. Steve has been teaching inquiry-based science for more than 20 years. He will be assisted by some terrific staff from Penn Charter’s Day Camp.
Campers will design, build, and test projects to keep and take home.
Monday: Lego Robotics
Who doesn’t like Legos? This will be a fun intro into robotics and programming. Our Lego WeDo Robots are especially designed for young children.
Tuesday: Got Slime?
Everything is slimy, gooey, slippery and sticky! We will explore slime, gooey worms, gravity goo, and jelly marbles. Did we mention it’s really slimy?
Wednesday: Color Day!
It’s a color mixing fun day! We will investigate rainbow color milk, UV beads, kaleidoscopes, color mixing tabs and gel, and color chromatography, rainbow peepholes. Bubbles?
Thursday: Blast Off!
Everything that blasts off! From baking soda canisters, mentos and cola, to water and foam rockets. Be careful – you may get wet!
Friday: Keep Blasting Off!!
After finishing our water bottle rockets, we will go outside to blast them off!
