June 8-12
9:00-3:00
What Do Scientists do:
In this immensely popular unit, the strangely behaving substance called Oobleck provides students authentic insight into real-world scientific inquiry. Students are totally engaged in observation, hands-on investigation, a scientific convention, and spacecraft design.
Field Trip: DC Museum of Natural History
CAMP
Young Discoverer
June 15-19
9:00-3:00
Secret Formulas: In these compelling physical science activities, children investigate the properties of substances as they make their own personal brands of paste, toothpaste, cola, and ice cream. The unit provides real-life experiences with chemistry and conveys key science/math skills and concepts, including cause and effect.Field Trip: Pepsi Cola Factory
CAMP
Young Discoverer
June 22-26
9:00-3:00
Mystery Festival: This extremely popular forensic science unit features two imaginative and compelling mysteries, one for younger and one for older children. Students learn to distinguish evidence from inference, and conduct such crime-lab investigations as thread tests, powder tests, DNA comparisons, chromatography, and fingerprinting.Field Trip: Prince William Forensic Center
CAMP
Young Discoverer
June 29-July 3
9:00-3:00
Bubble-ology: Study of Bubbles
These captivating, bubble-centric tabletop learning stations are packed with math and science content. Making your own bubble solution is fun, but sometimes the bubbles don't seem to work as well as the solutions you buy in the store. In this experiment you can test if adding corn syrup or glycerin to your bubble solution will make it just as good as the stuff you can buy. This experiment will have you blowing bubbles!
Field Trip: DC National Zoo
