Science Camps 2021

Science Camp:  Final Frontiers: Sea & Space

Explore the mysterious realms of sea and space as you enter the exciting worlds of marine biology and astronomy! Dive in and examine weird wonders of the sea, observe the anatomy of a real fish and learn the ancient technique of gyotaku or “fish rubbing”, and discover the ocean’s living fossils. Then blast off to discovering space and stars as you make an out-of-this-world solar system model, prepare for lift-off as you build and launch your own stomp rocket while learning about Newton’s Laws of Motion, complete a mission to the Moon, and design and build a space capsule that will safely bring your “eggstronaut” in for a landing.  Please send a snack and drink with your child.  Masks are required as recommended by the CDC.
