Animals, Insects, Rocks, & Minerals
Have you ever wondered which birds fly the fastest? Or how many pairs of legs insects have? Or how some rocks float? Explore these questions and more through hands-on science experiments, fun activities and engaging games. In this workshop, we will watch birds and insects in nature, create animal and insect-based art projects, compare rocks and minerals, take a micro-hike with our own magnifying lens (which each child takes home at the conclusion), learn the bee waggle dance, and use microscopes to look at specimens up close. Get in on all of this animal, insect, rock and mineral fun! Ages 7-12
Budding Botanic Blast off!
Are you a budding plant person? Come examine the building blocks of botany: seeds, stems, roots, leaves, and flowers--checking out their identifying characteristics and differences from one another. We will make botanic art, touch and see plant life up close, sprout seeds, learn about plant families, examine botany under the microscope, and participate in cool science experiments and fun learning games. Join us for a Funtastic time with flora! Ages 7-12
Follow Me Robot
How would you like to build and take home a robot that has four build-in microphones? It will detect the sound source and in turn it will move and turn accordingly. It is your own robot to build and take home. Wow! It starts flashing and plays Do-Re-Me. Make it move the way you want it to move. It's so smart. It will move in its own routine if it does not get a signal in 1 minute. It will go to sleep if you do not issue any commands in 90 seconds. However, you can wake it up. Learn about the different gears and sensors as you build it. Get to build other robots working in groups. Join in our Sumo wrestling and obstacle course events with what you have built. See everything happening as you build. That's the Funtastic way! Ages 7-12
Fun with Electronics & Circuitry
Learning electronics and circuitry is a snap in this Funtastic Workshop. Participants experiment with (and take home at the conclusion) a kit with a variety of parts that snap together safely and easily. Transform electrical energy into sound, motion, and light! Launch a glow-in-the-dark flying propeller. Build a musical doorbell, burglar alarm, or radio. Participants will identify paths of electricity through circuits and understand series and parallel circuits. Colorful pictorial directions for each of the projects, patient instructors, and plenty of time for questions/experiments/tinkering/discussions means your builder will be creating and learning in no time. It's the perfect program for emerging engineers. Sign up to snap into some fun! Ages 7-12
All specialty camps risk being cancelled if the minimum number of participants is not met at least one week prior to the first scheduled day. Therefore, do not register for this program if your child needs to be in a program while you are at work. We can not guarantee that this program will take place.
