We are very excited to offer a 5 day Art and Science camp for kids age 5 to 10. This will be a fun hands-on experience. We will be doing a variety of projects covering life and microorganisms, physics, geology and chemistry. We will: make electrical circuits, make a lemon battery, culture algae, identify fossils and make our own fossil, make cyanotype prints, extract chlorophyll, explore fluorescence, make a thermometer, experiment with a marshmallow in a vacuum and more. Each day will consist of science experiments, art projects and dance choreography capturing the scientific concept covered that day.
